Representative Text

1 I am clinging to the Rock, blessed saving Rock,
While the angry storms may o'er me roll;
I am sheltered 'neath the cleft from the tempest's shock,
Blessed Refuge to my weary soul.

Refrain:
I am clinging, clinging, clinging to the Rock;
Blessed Refuge, Thou art dear to me;
I am clinging, clinging, clinging to the Rock;
Blessed Savior, I will cling to Thee.

2 I am clinging to the Rock, blessed Rock of Faith,
There I see my Savior's loving form;
I am looking unto Him while my fleeting breath
Waits His praises thro' the piercing storm. [Refrain]

3 I am clinging to the Rock, blessed Rock of Hope,
Keeping near the Savior's bleeding side;
I am anchored to the Rock that was cleft for me,
Near the fountain of the crimson tide. [Refrain]

4 I am clinging to the rock, blessed Rock of Love,
Let me, Lord, upon Thy bosom rest;
I am waiting for the time to be called above,
With the ransomed there forever blest. [Refrain]
