Representative Text

1 He is my Rock, I build on Him,
He is my strength for time to come!
In sunshine bright or shadow dim,
He’ll safely guide me to my home.

He is my Rock, on Him I build,
My firm foundation ne’er shall yield!
The pow’rs of sin shall not prevail,
My Rock is sure and cannot fail!

2 He is my Rock, beyond the veil,
By faith and hope I’m anchored fast!
Thro’ gentle breeze or boist’rous gale,
I’ll reach the port of heav’n at last. [Chorus]

3 He is my Rock, beneath its shade
I find a refuge and a rest;
A cooling stream, a grassy glade,
A mansion fair among the blest. [Chorus]
