51. Sheltered in the Rock of Ages

1 Sheltered in the Rock of Ages,
Safe am I while Christ doth keep,
I can smile when tempest rages,
Guarded by my Lord, I sleep.

Refrain:
Sheltered in the Rock of Ages,
Sheltered in the Rock,
Sheltered in the Rock,
I am safe when tempest rages,
Sheltered in the Rock divine.

2 There no wave of doubt can harm me,
Nor can aught my peace destroy;
Kept am I when storms assail me,
Nor can anxious care annoy. [Refrain]

3 Vainly dash the billows o’er me,
’Mid their loudest roar I sing;
Though the thunders crash around me,
To the winds my fears I fling. [Refrain]

4 ’Tis so sweet in Christ to rest me,
When all earthly comforts fail;
He doth ever cheer and bless me,
Faith in Him doth e’er prevail. [Refrain]
