Secret Place


I remember the beginning

When I found the secret place

Don’t know why it felt familiar

But I knew it right away

There were times it seemed so simple

And sometimes so unsure

But not a moment was ever wasted

Knelt behind those closed doors


‘Cause the secret place is secret

That’s where it gets its name

It’s not hiding but it’s hidden

Far from all religious games

No it won’t bring recognition

Or get called up on a stage

‘Cause the melody is sacred

You sing in the secret place


It’s an open invitation

No words you have to say

If you want it you can get there

There’s a thousand different ways

There’s no glory in the method

None are right and none are wrong

You just put your trust in Jesus

And then start to sing along


‘Cause just as you are you’re welcome

There’s no part you have to play

Doesn’t need to be impressive

Couldn’t do that anyway

‘Cause when it gets too complicated

That melody will fade

But if you take the time to listen

You can hear heaven’s refrain


There’ll be days that it feels distant

So far beyond my reach

Like my failures locked the entrance

And my spirit lost the keys

But the beauty of the secret

That I’m so grateful for

Is that Your presence doesn’t need me

To kick down an open door


So I’m running to the secret

I’m going there today

Got no reason not to worship

And get undignified again

There’s no time for inhibitions

Or to care what people say

I won’t waste another minute

Take me to the secret place
