In the Secret of His Presence

This song is by Sandra McCracken and appears on the album The Builder and the Architect (2005).

In the secret of His presence how my soul delights to hide
Oh, how precious are the lessons which I learn at Jesus' side
Earthly cares forever vex me, while thy trials lay me low;
But when Satan comes to tempt me, to that secret place I go,
To the secret place I go.

When my soul is faint and thirsty, 'neath the shadow of Your wings
There is cool and pleasant shelter, and a fresh and crystal spring;
And my Savior rests beside me, as we hold communion sweet:
If I tried, I could not utter what He says when thus we meet,
What He says when thus we meet.

Only this I know: I tell Him all my doubts, my griefs and fears;
Oh, how patiently He listens and my sorrowed soul He cheers:
Do you think He ne'er reproves me? What a false Friend He would be,
If He never, never told me of the sin which He must see,
Of the sin which He must see.

Would you like to know the sweetness of the secret of the Lord?
Go and hide beneath His shadow: this shall then be your reward;
And whene'er you leave the silence of that happy meeting place,
You will surely bear the image of the Master in your face,
Of the Master in your face.
