No Secret From God


You may have many secrets that... Are sensible or odd...
But there is not a single one... That you can keep from God
... Because He hears your every word... He sees all things you
do... And in the last analysis... He knows your thinking too
... Yes, you may hide from all the world... And feel that you
are free... Quite sure your special secret is ... Beyond discovery
... But God, who ,made the earth and you... Knows all your
hopes and dreams... Your daily virtues and your faults... And
your most secret schemes... However brilliant you may be...
Whatever time or tide... From God, your Lord and Master there
... Is nothing you can hide.
