1 In the rifted Rock I'm resting;
Safely sheltered, I abide.
There no foes nor storms molest me,
While within the cleft I hide.
Now I'm resting, sweetly resting,
In the cleft once made for me.
Jesus, blessed Rock of Ages,
I will hide myself in Thee.
2 Long pursued by sin and Satan,
Weary, sad, I longed for rest.
Then I found this heav'nly shelter
Opened in my Saviour's breast. [Refrain]
3 Peace which passeth understanding,
Joy the world can never give,
Now in Jesus I am finding;
In His smiles of love I live. [Refrain]
4 In the rifted Rock I'll hide me
Till the storms of life are past;
All secure in this blest refuge,
Heeding not the fiercest blast. [Refrain]
