The Secret Place

When we reflect on Your commandments Lord
There’s not one we didn’t break

But you knew when our days were numbered
Long ago in the Secret Place

The struggles we’d face, the choices we’d make
And where we would stumble into mistakes

But You gave us free will to discern for ourselves
You allowed us to choose our own way

And what we would do with the knowledge of You
Leaves us standing where we are today

As children in our younger days
Some were acquainted with You Jesus

But then we drifted away in Life’s next phase
Seeking only to please us

We spent time and money on worldly things
It took all of our attention

Never giving you a second thought
Your name we seldom mentioned

Yes, when Life was good and full of joy
Without You we were content

But when Life’s adversity crossed our path
Running back to You we went

We still grumble and complain
Yet You continue to feed us in the desert

Not realizing we are being refined
When we succumb under pressure

Let us remember…though Your voice may be silent
You never leave us or forsake us

To this day… You still guide us
Yes You O Lord… are still our pilot

So please forgive us for the times
We’ve broken your commands and Your heart

Teach us to turn from our wicked ways
So we will never be apart

Help us to surrender and repent
Claiming Your Mercy and Grace

Living up to the life You ordained for us
Long ago in the Secret Place
