1 I now can sing since I’ve been redeemed,
I’m on the everlasting Rock;
I’ve faith in Christ, my Redeemer, King,
I’m on the everlasting Rock.

Refrain:
Then roll, roll billows, roll,
I’m on the everlasting Rock,
Roll, roll billows, roll,
I’m on the everlasting Rock.

2 The storms may rage, and the billows roll,
I’m on the everlasting Rock;
No earthly storm e’er can move my soul,
I’m on the everlasting Rock. [Refrain]

3 I am secure, for my faith will hold,
I’m on the everlasting Rock;
My life He doth with His love enfold,
I’m on the everlasting Rock. [Refrain]
