9381. Show Me The Rock

1 Savior, break this heart of mine,
Melt it now with love divine;
Only Thou my help must be,
Only Thou canst set me free.

Out of the deep and miry clay,
Take me away, oh, take me away;
Show me the Rock, O Lord, I pray,
Rock of eternal ages.

2 Bend Thine ear and hear my cry,
Leave me not in sin to die;
This my hope, my only plea―
Thou didst come to rescue me. [Refrain]

3 Reach Thy hand and lift my soul
From the waves that o’er me roll;
Where for refuge can I flee?
Lord, I perish; save Thou me. [Refrain]

4 Save me now and evermore;
Lord, I would Thy name adore;
Hide my trembling soul in Thee;
Lord, I perish, save Thou me. [Refrain]
