Representative Text

1 Steal away to Jesus, to the secret place of prayer;
Steal away to Jesus, for that fellowship so rare;
He has tasted our life’s grief, He can give you full relief:
Steal away to Jesus, His own peace will greet you there.

Refrain:
Steal away, steal away to the secret place of prayer;
Steal away to Jesus, face to face He’ll meet you there.

2 Steal away to Jesus, sorrow-crowned His life has been;
Steal away to Jesus, His blood covers ev’ry sin;
He has ever loved you so, there the peace of God you’ll know:
Steal away to Jesus, healing grace you’ll have within. [Refrain]

3 Steal away to Jesus, with the vexing cares that fret;
Steal away to Jesus, where your trials you’ll forget;
He your soul is ever near, to His heart your life is dear:
Steal away to Jesus, where the banquet feast is set. [Refrain]
