THE SECRET OF POWER
In all of life's vicissitudes
It's in the peaceful, quiet hour
That one discovers for himself
The source and secret of power.
Communing with Jesus our Lord
Is a blessed and hallowed treat;
What great joy to fellowhship, honor,
Sing and worship at His feet.
Jesus is the Rock of Defense
A source of spiritual power;
In the time of greatest need
He's a strong and mighty tower.
He's our shelter and hiding place,
The shadow of a mighty Rock;
In life's ongoing fierce battles
He keeps us from enemy attack.
The adversary comes relentless
With deception and sophistries
To derail and cause us to falter
And fail in our Gospel ministries.
But personal victories are gained,
And Heaven's bells loudly ring
When in the audience chamber
We spend time alone with the King.
In Jesus we're promised that
We are more than conquerors
For the archdeceiver is defeated
By the Word of God and prayers.
When we draw nigh to God
And strongly resist the Devil,
The holy angels are by our side
To protect us from all evil.
The secret of spiritual power
Is to study our Bible and pray;
When this is done faithfully
Jesus will keep the enemy away.
In the peace and joy of holy solitude
We gain inner strength and might;
There's a special place He sets for us
In the warmth of the morning light.
