Representative Text

1 High as the mountain tho' the billows roll,
In Jesus' keeping I will trust my soul;
He can the raging seas and wind control,
In the cleft of the Rock He will hide me.

Refrain:
Hide me, safely hide me,
Hide me, safely hide me,
Hide me from all danger,
In the Rock that was cleft for me.

2 O soul, be faithful; to the end endure,
Trusting His promises forever suer;
Kept in the fortress of His love secure,
In the cleft of the Rock He will hide me. [Refrain]

3 When thro' the Jordan I must take my way,
His staff will comfort me and be my stay;
Over the river there is endless day,
In the cleft of the Rock He will hide me. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
