Representative Text

1 Firm as a rock I will cling to my Savior!
He is my hope where’er I may be;
O what a joy and peace in believing
There is a home preparing for me.

Refrain:
My longing eyes by faith behold,
The gates of pearl, the streets of gold;
With Christ my Lord I there shall be,
And wear the crown laid up for me.

2 Firm as a rock I will cling to my Savior!
Walking with Him no danger I fear;
How can I want when He is my Shepherd,
How can I fall when He is so near? [Refrain]

3 Firm as a rock I will cling to my Savior!
Praising His word, adoring His love;
Praising His name whose infinite mercy
Leadeth my soul to mansions above. [Refrain]

4 Firm as a rock I will cling to my Savior!
Nearer He brings my dwelling so fair;
Angels of light are waving me onward;
Glory to God, my treasure is there. [Refrain]
