I have learned the wondrous secret Of abiding in the Lord; I have found the strength and sweetness Of confiding in His word; I have tasted life’s pure fountain, I am drinking of His blood, I have lost myself in Jesus, I am sinking into God.
Refrain: I’m abiding in the Lord, And confiding in His word, And I’m hiding, safely hiding, In the bosom of His love.
I am crucified with Jesus, And He lives and dwells in me, I have ceased from all my struggling, ’Tis no longer I but He; All my will is yielded to Him, And His Spirit reigns within, And His precious blood each moment Keeps me cleansed and free from sin.
All my cares I cast upon Him, And He bears them all away; All my fears and griefs I tell Him, All my needs from day to day; All my strength I draw from Jesus, By His breath I live and move; E’en His very mind He gives me And His faith and life and love.
For my words I take His wisdom, For my works His Spirit’s pow’r, For my ways His gracious presence Guards and guides me every hour; Of my heart He is the Portion, Of my joy the ceaseless Spring, Savior, Sanctifier, Keeper, Glorious Lord and loving King.
