Christ is our rock and our defense

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Christ is our Rock and our Defense,
Nor earth nor hell can force us thence;
Our Advocate before the throne,
Who with our prayers presents his own.

2 He is the burdened sinner's Rest,
Our Prophet, and atoning Priest;
To him as our exalted King,
We homage pay, our offering bring.

3 He is our Captain and our Guide,
The Friend, the Husband of the bride;
The Counselor, the Prince of peace,
The Lord our strength and righteousness:

4 The Fountain whence our blessings flow,
A Lamb, and yet a Lion, too;
The Sun for light and guidance given,
The Door which opens into heaven.

5 He is the Shepherd of the sheep,
Who does his flock in safety keep;
The Conqueror he, the Judge of men,
The Faithful Witness, the Amen!
