Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – My Hymns & Songs – 11/04/2018 – Knowing the Secret

We are continuing to look at hymns and songs that impacted my spiritual life – with another reminder to check out the other blog I contribute to, ProverbialThought.com, and the daily thoughts on the Bible (specifically Proverbs).

I Want To Know You (In the Secret)

Lyrics

In the secret,
In the quiet place
in the stillness you are there
In the secret in the quite hour I wait, only for you
Cause i want to know you more

In the secret
In the quite place
In the stillness you are there
In the secret in the quiet hour I wait
Because i want to know you more

Chorus
I want to know you
I want to hear your voice
I want to know you more
I want to touch you
I want to see your face
I want to know you more

I am reaching for the highest goals
That i might receive the prize
Pressing onward
Pushing every hindrance aside
Out of my way
Cause i want to know you more

Chorus x2

in the secret in the quite place
in the stillness you are there

Chorus x2

A few thoughts …

When I was a young believer, this song helped me to realize and live out an important truth.

Christ said we regularly should get to a place that is out of sight and quiet and seek God through prayer (Matthew 6:6). We can call this the secret place. Our highest goal is to be like Christ, so we are seeking God asking the Holy Spirit to make us more Christ-like.

To quote Jesus (Luke 10:37), “Go and do likewise.”
