From all the world I’ve turned aside, And found a fold of shelter; In Christ I safely now abide, Oh, praise His name forever.
Refrain: Hid away, hid away, Hid away with Jesus; I’m washed and cleansed in Jesus’ blood, My heart is filled with praises; Hid away, hid away, Hid away with Jesus; “My life is hid with Christ in God,” I’m hid away with Jesus.
A home in sect, no, not for me; My home came down from heaven— Jerusalem, so pure and free! To all the door is open.
Surrounded by salvation’s wall, A fortress strong, abiding, The pow’rs of earth, “the gates of hell,” Are weak and unprevailing.
Jerusalem—home from above— The home that hath foundation; Her children all are born of love, And blest with full salvation.
