158. Stand On the Rock

1 Firmly stand for God, in the world’s mad strife,
Tho’ the bleak winds roar, and the waves beat high;
‘Tis the Rock alone giveth strength and life,
When the hosts of sin are nigh.

Let us stand on the Rock,
Firmly stand on the Rock,
On the Rock of Christ alone;
If the strife we endure,
We shall stand secure,
‘Mid the throng who surround the throne.

2 Firmly stand for Right, with a motive pure
With a true heart bold, and a faith e’er strong;
‘Tis the Rock alone giveth triumph sure,
O’er the world’s array of wrong. [Refrain]

3 Firmly stand for Truth, It will serve you best;
Tho’ it waiteth long, it is sure at last;
‘Tis the Rock alone giveth peace and rest,
When the storms of life are past. [Refrain]
