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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

I have a sure and safe retreat

Full 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]
