The Hidden God

My little church is standing still

Though closed up it is true

Yellow and pink sandstone

A hidden gem to view

Special in my memory

Foundation stone of life

Here I found the hidden God

Truth against all strife


God’s presence and community

Gathered in this place

Our little school beside it

Schoolyard noise and grace

Humble working people

Mines and cotton mills

Lancashire and Ireland

Together faced all ills


The hidden God is hidden still

He lives in quiet halls

Away from daily tumult

But in the midst withal

Go into that secret place

The quiet of your heart

And there you’ll find him waiting

Ready to play his part
