333. Jesus Is a Rock in a Weary Land

Jesus is a rock in a weary land,
a weary land, a weary land;
my Jesus is a rock in a weary land,
a shelter in the time of storm.

1 No one can do like Jesus,
not a mumbling word he said;
he went walking down to Lazarus’ grave,
and he raised him from the dead. [Refrain]

2 When Jesus was on earth,
the flesh was very weak;
he took a towel and girded himself
and he washed his disciples’ feet. [Refrain]

3 Yonder comes my Savior,
him whom I love so well;
he has the palm of victory
and the keys of death and hell. [Refrain]
