Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

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]
