Full Text

1 Come stay thy feet by the shelt’ring Rock,
And sweet thy rest will be;
Come lave thy brow in the spray that falls
So clear and cool for thee;
Too long has thou lingered away,
But mercy is pleading with thee;
O stay thy feet by the shelt’ring Rock,
And sweet thy rest will be.

Refrain:
Then hide thee, hide thee
In the cleft of the Rock;
Hide thee, hide thee,
Hide in the cleft of the Rock.

2 Come bring thy heart to the shelt’ring Rock,
And all thy weight of care;
Look up, the light of a Savior’s love
Is smiling brightly there;
He waiteth to welcome thee home,
O breathe but one penitent prayer;
The blood that flows from His wounded side,
Thro’ faith will cleanse thee there. [Refrain]
