551. O safe to the Rock that is higher than I

1 O safe to the Rock that is higher than I
My soul in its conflicts and sorrows would fly;
So sinful, so weary, thine, thine would I be;
Thou blest Rock of Ages, I'm hiding in thee.

Refrain:
Hiding in thee, hiding in thee -
Thou blest Rock of Ages, I'm hiding in thee.

2 In the calm of the noon-tide, in sorrow's lone hour,
In times when temptation casts o'er me its power,
In the tempests of life, on its wide, heaving sea,
Thou blest Rock of Ages, I'm hiding in thee. [Refrain]

3 How oft in the conflict, when pressed by the foe,
I have fled to my refuge and breathed out my woe!
How oft when trials like sea-billows roll,
Have i hidden in thee, O thou Rock of my soul! [Refrain]
