Shut in with God alone,
I spend the qui­et hour;
His mer­cy and His love I own,
And seek His sav­ing pow­er.

Shut in with God alone,
In me­di­ta­tion sweet,
My spir­it waits be­fore the throne,
Bowed low at Je­sus’ feet.

Shut in with God alone,
I praise His ho­ly name,
Who gave the Sav­ior to atone
For all my sin and shame.

Shut in with God alone,
And yet I have no fear;
I rest be­neath the cleans­ing blood,
And per­fect love is there.
