our secret place



Our Secret Place

I hear your voice now whispering
secrets longing to be told
And the clamor that surrounds me
drowns out heaven's gentle toll

Lead me to our secret place, Lord
take me through that narrow gate
Where all weariness and struggle
is banished by the light of your face

My hand in yours we'll walk along
our hearts melting into one
And the silence will brim with words
You speak
here in our secret place

"I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name." {Isaiah 45:3}

I just saw your quote by Ann Kiemel Anderson. Oh my! Ann was my FAVORITE author 30 years ago. I had ALL of her books. Haven't heard of her in years.
