In The Secret Lyrics - MercyMe
Review The Song (8)
In the secret,
In the quiet place
in the stillness, you are there
In the secret, in the quiet hour I wait, only for you
'Cause I want to know you more
In the secret
In the quiet place
In the stillness, you are there
In the secret, in the quiet hour I wait
Because I want to know you more
I want to know you
I want to hear your voice
I want to know you more
I want to touch you
I want to see your face
sponsored linksI want to know you more
I am reaching for the highest goals
That I might receive the prize
Pushing every hindrance aside
Out of my way
Cause I want to know you more
In the secret, in the quite place
in the stillness, you are there

I believe anonymous on 10/9/09 has true statements on wanting to see God and wanting to hear him but i believe it is the human nature at which God created for us to Want a lot from God. We want to know him because he CREATED us! We love him and wish we to knoe him!
God honours those that seek Him | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/17/10
In the quiet hour" is talking about making a quiet time to read God's word and letting Him speak to us.
God delight's in those that "seek to know Him more"
"delight thyself also in the Lord and He shall give you the desire's of thine heart."
comment | Reviewer: anonymous | 12/4/09
i agree with the agnostics view to some extent. first, i must say, your last sentence is amazing. i am definitely keeping that quote, even though i dont know you. i agree with you about many of the things you say. although i don't totally know your motives, i consider myself a Christian more than an agnostic, but I feel like i'd share many of the same beliefs as you.
my opinion is that yes, many people are hypocritical in condemning other religions just for being a different religion. but i believe that just because perhaps people as a whole, or some specific people do so doesn't mean the religion itself is guilty. just because some Christians attack other religions doesn't mean its a reason not to believe in the Christian God. Forget what they do, it's what YOU do thats important.
an agnostic's view of the song and it's reviews | Reviewer: Andrew Kaufman | 10/26/09
I am, quite admittedly, an agnostic. well, maybe spiritual, but not religious is closer. I do think there's a higher power, but not necessarilly the Christian deity. I have read about and observed many religions and philosophies from around the world and have a pretty good working personal religion/philosophy that has served me pretty well to date. I use the teachings of the bible, Qur'an, Bavaghad Gita, and other holy books to help shape my life. I also am going to be the first to admit that I have my own set of faults. I am working on them, so I am not constantly at the mercy of those faults.
all that being said, I have read the lyrics of this song several times, and must say that I disagree with the "this is a terrible song" reviewer, as well as the other two, but only in part.
And, for those who read this and who don't have closed minds, blind faith is sometimes worse than no faith. wars, death, and many other atrocities have been comitted in various gods' names. automatically condemning a person that believes differently than you falls under that whole passing judgement thing I mentioned earlier. let someone believe their own thing. suggest, sure. have a good, INTELLECTUAL debate? absolutely. just don't say someone is wrong because they are different. that idea has caused too many problems remember, God will sort it all out in the end, and you aren't God.
This song is awesome | Reviewer: Jay | 10/22/09
There is an annointing on this song and the annointing breaks the yoke of bondage.. I'm not sure where "this is a terrible song" writer is coming from but it is for freedom that Jesus Christ set us free and God loves to hear what we want He loves relationship with us and even when we are screwed up(which this song is not for the record) He loves us... nit picking and being critical and trying to tear down what God has called clean isn't doing you or anyone else any good...anyhoo the song is amazing!
This is a terrible song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/9/09
"I want, I want, I want, I want ... " Goodness, what arrogance to make such demands of the living God. Is the writer of this song really so sure s/he wants to taunt God for not having yet provided enough? Is Jesus' death on the cross somehow inadequate for his/her needs? How about 2 Corinthians 12:8b? "My grace is sufficient for you." Hello? After which the humbled Paul writes, "Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
"I want to see your face." Really? Has the writer of this song read Exodus 33:20-23?
"I want to know You." What's stopping this songwriter? Christ says, "Take up your cross and follow Me." Do that and you'll know Him. That's a promise.
My Life is for HIM | Reviewer: Anand J | 11/11/07
