Representative Text

1 From the snares of sinful pleasures,
Would my soul for refuge flee
To the Rock of my salvation,—
Jesus Christ—and hide in Thee.

Blessed Rock of my salvation,
In Thy clef, O, let my stay,—
Blessed Rock of my salvation,—
Till earth’s kingdoms pass away.

2 Open up—Thou Rock once riven,
Let me in Thee ever hide,
Safe securely never fearing,
There no evil can betide. [Refrain]

3 Thou, my all, O, Rock of Ages,
Let me in Thee ever stay,
Thou canst still the troubled waters,
Drive the doubts and fears away. [Refrain]

4 Mortal hand can never touch me,
Earthly pow’r no pleasures bring,
Thou, my All, O, Rock of Ages;
Helpless to Thee, now I cling. [Refrain]
