11196. The Rock Of Refuge

1 Surely, surely there is safety
In the shelter of our Lord,
He is ready to protect us,
When His mercy is implored;
Let us look to Him in trouble
When upon life’s stormy sea;
He will be a place of refuge,
Where our souls at rest may be.

2 He will lead us on to Heaven
If we follow in His way;
And will be the star to guide us
To the bright, celestial day;
Let us steer life’s vessel ever
To the harbor of His grace,
So that He at last may bring us
To behold Him face to face.

3 He’s a refuge never failing,
And a rock on which to stand;
And to us He’s ever reaching
With a tender, loving hand;
He will keep us safe for ever
Sheltered by His boundless love,
Till we enter thro’ the portals
To the home prepared above.
