Shut in with God - lyrics

Post by SingerForGod » Thu Nov 30, 2006 5:39 am

First I found this and then still continued trying to see if there was more. I then found the next part submitted by a person to a group on Yahoo and she had written 2 more verses. There are just a couple words different in the first verse of the two.

SHUT IN WITH GOD

Shut in with God
in a secret place;
There in the Spirit
beholding His face;
Gaining more Power
to run in the race,
I love to be
shut in with God.

(Here is the 2nd one.)

Shut in With God

Shut in with God
in a secret place,
there in the Spirit
beholding His Face...
Finding more power
to run in this race...
O how I long to be
shut in with God!

Shut in with God
while kneeling in prayer,
Finding His Beauty
and Glory there....
I bow in wonder
at His awesome Grace,
As He shuts me in
His Holy place.

As I'm shut in with God,
my strenght is renewed,
I soar like a eagle,
I'm born anew...
O the wonder!
O the Grace!
As I'm shut in with God
in this Holy place!

Shut in with God - lyrics

When I was a child there was a group of older people who would sing this song occasionally. I am sure there are more verses, but I can only remember the first verse and the refrain. I can play the melody "by ear" on the piano. Mike Hicks

Shut In With God

[Verse 1]
Of all pleasant places though rugged may be
There's no other place that's dearer to me
Than lo at the feet of my saviour I be
Oh I love to be shut in with God

[refrain]
Shut in with God in a secret place
Shut in with God beholding His face
Gaining new power to run in this race
Oh I love to be shut in with God

Shut in with God

The disciples were praying for the power to fall
Ten days they did tarry, on God they did call
Then God sent His spirit to baptize them all
For they had been shut in with God

Chorus
Shut in with God in a secret place
There in the spirit, beholding His face
Gaining new power to run in this race
Oh, I love to be shut in with God


Of all pleasant places on land or on sea
There's no place on earth that is sweeter to me
Than to kneel at the feet of my Master and Lord
For there, I'll be shut in with God


The pathway to Heaven, though rugged it may be
I'll travel 'til my precious Saviour I'll see
Then the gates of that city will open for me
And there I'll be shut in with God


Chorus x 2

Gaining new power to run in this race
Oh, I love to be shut in..... with... God....

I was laying there this morning, part of that song was on my heart. I just could'nt remember all the song. I was feeling the longing to be shut in with God. Then I thought I would look and see if I could find the rest of that song. I am so happy I did. I don't know the verses but the chorus was a blessing. Thank you.

Thank you for these beautiful verses. The chorus has been turning over in my heart and I have been unable to find the song in any hymnals. So glad for the computer and your willingness to share. God bless you and may we all desire to be shut in with God.

This was a song my mother sang on her deathbed, the evening before she went to be "shut in with God".

I awakened this a.m. and had my prayer & Bible study. When I finished I went in to get ready for the day. Out of the clear blue the words of this precious hymn, Shut in with God in the secret place was singing in my spirit. I was so touched because I have not heard or thought of that hymn in years and years. My Father and Mother pastored a church for 35 yrs and used to sing it as a special when I was a child in the 60's. God is so faithful. I am a pastors wife and was telling our ladies just last night at our home group about how important it is to make time for our precious Lord and not rush through our time with Him. How touching that He should bring this timeless hymn to my spirit. I did not have it in any of my hymnals..So grateful to find it. Bless you.

Just wanted to say that I have been looking for the words to the verses of this song for several years. The wife of the pastor I was raised under sang this song as I was growing up and she is the only person I know who knows the lyrics, and it is so hard to get in touch with her. I have been wanting to sing this. God's timing is perfect. We are having an "old-fashioned day" at our church in the near future and I was wanting to include this song. It means so much to me to have the words. Thanks to all of you that supplied lyrics. God bless.
