That's pretty much it as I know it. I haven't heard of any verses to this one.

I think that's all.  I've sung this chorus all my life and never have heard that there are verses.

I have found a couple of different versions, I am partial to the first 3 verses. Enjoy!

SHUT IN WITH GOD
        By  ________?

Shut in with God in a secret place,
There in the Spirit, beholding His face;
Gaining new power to run in this race,
Oh, I love to be shut in with God.

First I found this and then still continued trying to see if there was more. I then found the next part submitted by a person to a group on Yahoo and she had written 2 more verses. There are just a couple words different in the first verse of the two.

SHUT IN WITH GOD

Shut in with God -- in a secret place;
There in the Spirit -- beholding His face;
Gaining more Power -- to run in the race,
I love to be -- shut in with God.

(Here is the 2nd one.)

Shut in With God

1. Shut in with God -- in a secret place,
there in the Spirit -- beholding His Face...
Finding more power -- to run in this race...
O how I long to be -- shut in with God!

2. Shut in with God --while kneeling in prayer,
Finding His Beauty -- and Glory there....
I bow in wonder -- at His awesome Grace,
As He shuts me in -- His Holy place.

3. As I'm shut in with God, -- my strength is renewed,
I soar like a eagle, -- I'm born anew...
O the wonder! -- O the Grace!
As I'm shut in with God -- in this Holy place!

(verses 2 and 3 written by)
Dianna -- -- My Little Princess

The disciples were praying for the power to fall
Ten days they did tarry, on God they did call
Then God sent His spirit to baptize them all
For they had been shut in with God

Chorus
Shut in with God in a secret place
There in the spirit, beholding His face
Gaining new power to run in this race
Oh, I love to be shut in with God


Of all pleasant places on land or on sea
There’s no place on earth that is sweeter to me
Than to kneel at the feet of my Master and Lord
For there, I’ll be shut in with God

The pathway to Heaven, though rugged it may be
I’ll travel ‘til my precious Saviour I’ll see
Then the gates of that city will open for me
And there I’ll be shut in with God

This song is copyrighted and written by Everett W. Sugg (rest in peace) of Fort Worth Texas. He attended the Gospel Assembly church from 1953 until his passing in 1999. I am his son, and watcher of copyright violations. You may sing it as much as you want.....BUT,  don't try to record it (it's so costly).  Ron Sugg
