PLEASE NOTE - ONLY THE CHORUS IS IN OUR HYMNAL

          I was straying when Christ found me
          In the night so dark and cold;
          Tenderly His arm went round me,
          And He bore me to His fold.

            Chorus
            Precious hiding place,
            Precious hiding place,
            In the shelter of His love;
            Not a doubt or fear,
            Since my Lord is near,
            And I'm sheltered in His love.

          With His nail-scarred hand He bro't me
          To the shelter of His love;
          Of His grace and will He taught me,
          And of heav’nly rest above.

            Chorus
            Precious hiding place,
            Precious hiding place,
            In the shelter of His love;
            Not a doubt or fear,
            Since my Lord is near,
            And I'm sheltered in His love.

          Tho' the night be dark around me,
          I am safe, for He is near;
          Never shall my foes confound me,
          While the Savior’s voice I hear.

            Chorus
            Precious hiding place,
            Precious hiding place,
            In the shelter of His love;
            Not a doubt or fear,
            Since my Lord is near,
            And I’m sheltered in His love.
