Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full 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]
