415. Sweetly Resting

1 In the rifted rock I’m resting,
Safely sheltered I abide;
There no foes nor storms molest me,
While within the cleft I hide.

Refrain:
Now I’m resting, sweetly resting,
In the cleft once made for me;
Jesus, blessed Rock of Ages,
I will hide myself in Thee.

2 Long pursued by sin and Satan,
Weary, sad, I longed for rest;
Then I found this heav’nly shelter
Opened in my Savior’s breast. [Refrain]

3 Peace which passeth understanding,
Joy the world can never give,
Now in Jesus I am finding,
In His smiles of love I live. [Refrain]

4 In the rifted rock I’ll hide me,
Till the storms of life are past;
All secure in this blest refuge,
Heeding not the fiercest blast. [Refrain]
