Representative Text

1 Flee to the Rock, Christ Jesus,
Shelter for thee so nigh;
There thou shalt find a refuge;
Flee as thy days swiftly fly.

Flee to the Rock!
Flee to the Rock!
There thou shalt safely hide;
There thou shalt find rest for thy soul;
Flee to the Lamb crucified.

2 Flee to the Rock, Christ Jesus,
He shall thy covert be;
When fierce the tempests gather,
Safe in this refuge for thee. [Refrain]

3 Flee to the Rock, Christ Jesus,
Flee to this hiding place;
When sorely press’d by Satan,
Trust in His all-saving grace. [Refrain]

4 Flee to the Rock, Christ Jesus,
Weary and tired of sin;
Freely He’ll give thee pardon,
Sweetly His peace reign within. [Refrain]
