Full Text

1 When all the noise and stir of life,
And this mad love of show and strife;
Stare in my face with mocking pride;
I’ll shut the door with Christ inside.

I’ll shut the door with Christ inside,
Content to stay whete’er betide,
‘Tis there I learn of things divine,
And sweet communion with Christ is mine.

2 When troubles come in ev’ry form,
Like burning heat or raging storm;
In realms of pray’r my soul shall hide,
I’ll shut the door with Christ inside. [Refrain]

3 Not mine the cave far off from men,
Not mine the hermits lonely den;
God’s peace is near wahte’er betide,
He shuts the door with me inside. [Refrain]

4 Where’er I am, whate’er my care,
In joy or grief, when foul or fair;
Safe to my refuge God will guide,
There I’ll be safe with Him inside. [Refrain]
