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.
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]
