Representative Text

1 I rest in the shadow of Jesus, my Rock,
Secure from the storm and the tempest’s rude shock;
I dread not at noontide the sun’s scorching ray,
Nor fear in the darkness when closes the day.

In the shadow of the rock
I am resting, I am resting;
From the storm and tempest’s shock
I am resting, I am resting;
I fear no harm from the midnight’s dread alarm;
I know I am sheltered in the shadow of the rock.

2 My head He’ll anoint, and my cup He will fill,
His goodness and mercy will follow me still;
I walk in green pastures, with Jesus to guide,
No evil I fear, all my wants are supplied. [Refrain]

3 The twilight awaits me that cometh to all,
And soon o’er my pathway death’s shadow may fall;
The Master will meet me at setting of sun,
With ample reward and a blessed “Well done.” [Refrain]
