Representative Text

1 Cling close to the Rock, brother, danger is near;
Cling close to thy Saviour, and doubt not, nor fear;
For Jesus will hold thee, almighty to save,
Thy Jesus, who triumphed o'er death and the grave.

Refrain:
Cling close to the Rock, tho' the tempest may shock,
Assured of salvation in Jesus the Rock.

2 Cling close to the Rock, brother, closely to-day,
Ere waves of temptation shall sweep thee away;
Cling close to the Rock in the time of thy grief,
For Jesus brings speedy and precious relief. [Refrain]

3 Cling close to the Rock, brother, close to the Rock,
Tho' tempests may rage and tho' billows may shock;
For Jesus the Saviour, thy Refuge, thy Friend,
In mercy hath loved thee, and loves to the end. [Refrain]
