Maranatha Singers: You Are My Hiding Place

 

You Are My Hiding Place

 

SONG WRITER: Michael LednerHYMN HISTORY:The author, Michael Ledner, composed “You Are My Hiding Place” at the age of 27 when he was going through a painful period in his life, a period of separation from his wife. He shared the song with several friends, made a recording of it, and set it aside. Nine months later he shared the song with a group while they were serving at a kibbutz (communal settlement) in Israel. These friends took the song back with them to California, and after it was sung there, Michael was contacted by Maranantha! Music who wished to record You Are My Hiding Place.”

Cleft of the Rock

My soul seeks refuge
Anger, hate, and war abound
Hide me in the cleft

He is my hiding place.
