As a blind person, Fanny Crosby faced daily challenges. She wrote many hymns based on the Psalms. Psalm 32:7, “You are my hiding place”, may have influenced her as she wrote this song. Certainly Exodus 33:22 did. Moses asked the Lord to show him his presence. God said, “I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand”.
I hope that you will enjoy this Hymn and that it will bring back memories of days gone by, when churches sang the Hymns of the faith. Be sure and sing along!
