1 There’s a secret we can know
Walking with the Lord below,
And the bliss of such a life is constant joy;
We can only find it true,
When his footsteps we pursue,
When our lives in his sweet service we employ.

I’ve surrendered, now he fills me;
I’m so glad I ever found this blessed way,
‘Tis a precious life to know,
To have sunshine as you go, Hallelujah.
I’m so glad I’ve entered in.

2 We can, like the saints of old,
Who now walk the streets of gold,
Have the witness of his presence every day;
If in Jesus we abide,
And our all to him confide,
Then his blessed Spirit comes with us to stay. [Refrain]

3 He can quiet ev’ry storm,
Bid the winds his will perform,
Tho’ the sky’s so dark we cannot see our way;
We can trust his hand to guide
Even over Jordan’s tide
And the clouds shall flee before eternal day. [Refrain]

4 Paul and Silas felt this pow’r,
Singing at the midnight hour,
Tho’ with bleeding backs they in a dungeon lay;
They forgot to think of pain,
For a wave from glory came;
Praise the Lord! That pow’r is just the same today. [Refrain]
