Behind the Songs: In The Secret

Song stories & lyrics from the album Fire in the Night: In The Secret


This song came after a spending a really enjoyable time with the Lord during my quiet time. I was literally elated from being in his presence and felt led to spend some time in my ‘creative space,’ just having a good time in the safety of his presence. I had been in Matthew 6 where it talks about: “when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your father who is unseen. Then your father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” I started to just sing those words to him ‘in the secret / behind the closed door’ of my living room at my piano, enjoying being in the creative place and in the fullness-of-joy that his presence brings.

In the Secret

In the secret, behind my closed door
Is where I meet You
I’m beggin’ for face to face today

Face to face
Is where I know my place
In this crazy world
Some call home
My heart and flesh are set on
Eternities today
In the secret, behind my closed door

I wanna go all the way ... in the middle of the day ... in the face to face
I wanna have some fun ... in the noonday sun ... with my Only One
I wanna take my place ... in Your warm embrace ... looking face to face
I wanna have some fun … in the noonday sun … with my Only One

Face to face
Is where I know my place
In this crazy world
Some call home
My heart and flesh are set on
Eternities today

In the secret, behind my closed door
In the secret, behind my closed door
In the secret, behind my closed door
In the secret...
