In The Secret of Thy Presence

1 Thessalonians 5:17

In the secret of Thy presence,

Where the pure in heart may dwell,

Are the springs of sacred service

And a power that none can tell.

There my love must bring its offering;

There my heart must yield its praise;

And my Lord will come revealing

All the secrets of His ways.

In the secret of Thy presence,

In the hiding of Thy power,

Let me love Thee, let me serve Thee

Every consecrated hour.

More than all my lips may utter,

More than all I do or bring,

Is the depth of my devotion

To my Savior, Lord and King.

Nothing less will keep me tender,

Nothing less will keep me true;

Nothing less will keep the fragrance

And the bloom on all I do.

Blessed Lord, to see Thee truly,

Then to tell as I have seen,

This shall rule my life supremely,

This shall be the sacred gleam.

Sealed again is all the sealing,

Pledged again my willing heart,

First to know Thee, then to serve Thee,

Then to see Thee as Thou art.

Albert Orsborn, The Beauty of Jesus
