Representative Text

1 Deep in the depths of the Saviour’s love—
Firm on the Rock of Ages;
Safe and secure from the storms above—
Calm while the tempest rages!

Sweetly I trust in my Lord above,
Knowing how well He careth;
Gladly I yield to His matchless love—
Sorrow and joy He shareth.

2 Held in the grasp of the Saviour’s arms—
Safe in the Master’s keeping;
Free from the dread of the world’s alarms
Whether awake or sleeping. [Refrain]

3 Brave in the face of the fiercest foe—
Forth to the battle going;
God will protect as I onward go—
Pow’r from on high bestowing. [Refrain]

4 Strong in the faith of the Christ who died—
Telling abroad the story;
Saved thro’ the blood of the Crucified—
Cloth’d in the light of Glory. [Refrain]
