Where can we hide the truth from man?
Looking for this song I learned in the mid to late 70's.  Don't know the author, but I think that is the title.  Thank you!!!!!!!! K

Not sure if this is it? Words are by Sebastian Temple, who also wrote 'Make Me a Channel of Your Peace'.

Where Shall We Hide The Truth?

"Where shall we hide the truth from man?"
The gods all cried when he was made.
"How can we guard our secret now?"
They ask each other most afraid.

"Hide it in the Earth; he will find it.
Hide it on a mountain; he will climb it.
Even in the sea he will find it.
Where shall we hide the truth from man?"

Quite beside themselves, they cried:
"This little guy will take our throne.
We have made him far too smart
Not to claim our heaven home!

Hide it in matter; he'll analyze it.
Even in hell; he'll surmise it.
Where shall we hide the truth from man?"

They thought of stars in outer space
Or in the nature of a tree.
But they knew that man could solve
Each and every mystery.

"Hide it in the wind; he'll pursue it.
Hide it in an act; he will do it.
Even in an atom he will view it.
Where shall we hide the truth from man?"

Then they solved the mystery
Of how the frightened gods should win.
The wisest said, "Let's take the truth
And hide it deep inside of him.

Hide it in his heart; he will doubt it.
Hide it in his soul; he'll live without it.
Even if we should reveal and shout it,
He won't believe the truth is within him."

God bless,
