I’m hid away with Christ in God,
Yes, hid away with Jesus;
I’m now beneath the dripping blood,
I’m hid away with Jesus.
I’m walking with my blessèd Lord,
I’m trusting in His precious word;
I find His service is not hard,
I’m hid away with Jesus.

Refrain

I’m hid away, yes hid away,
I’m hid with Christ in God;
I’m dead to sin, alive in Christ,
I’m washed in His blood.

The narrow way is now so plain,
I’m hid away with Jesus;
That fools shall never err therein,
I’m hid away with Jesus.
The gate that’s straight is just before,
Which, when we reach we’ll sigh no more;
Our sorrows then will all be o’er,
I’m hid away with Jesus.

Refrain

O brother dear, to keep good cheer,
Be hid away with Jesus;
For then you’ll find your Savior near,
Keep hid away with Jesus.
We’re basking now in Heaven’s light,
By faith and prayer our way shines bright;
We get so near that Heav’n’s in sight,
When hid away with Jesus.

Refrain

O sinner, turn to God and live,
Be hid away with Jesus;
A crown of life to you He’ll give,
When hid away with Jesus.
Repent, believe, and love Him, too,
For He has done so much for you;
He’ll wash and cleanse you thro’ and thro’—
Be hid away with Jesus.

Refrain
