Representative Text

1 There’s a secret God has whispered
To His hidden ones alone;
‘Tis a secret, sweeter, stranger,
Than thy heart has tho’t or known.

2 Changeless secret, how it keeps us
Thro’ all changes life can bring;
Joy may cheer, or trial press us,
Still the restful heart can sing.

3 Holy secret, how it cleanses
All the heart from self and sin;
Crowding out the pow’r of evil
By the life of Christ within.

4 Mighty secret, how it brings us
Heav’nly help for hearts forlorn;
Turns our battle-tide to triumph,
Changes midnight into morn.

5 Precious secret, I have found it,
Precious Jesus, Thou art mine;
Prove in me Thy boundless fullness,
Live in me Thy life divine.
