I have a sure and safe retreat

Representative Text

1 I have a sure and safe retreat
To which I always flee,
From every storm of life I meet—
’Tis Christ the Rock for me.

Within the Rock I safely hide,
A glorious place for me;
There’s naught more sure that can abide
Through time or eternity.

2 Though tempests rage and wild winds blow,
Whom can I trust but Thee?
I feel secure from every foe
In Christ, the Rock for me. [Refrain]

3 Come stormy wind and rolling sea,
Come fire and tempest shock,
I’m in that cleft once made for me
In Christ the solid Rock. [Refrain]
