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.

Refrain:
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]
