1 I’m standing on the Rock of Ages,
What matter if the rough winds blow?
I’m fearing not the storms which gather,
There’s safety in the Lord I know.

Refrain:
I’m standing on the Rock of Ages,
In safety I may here abide;
The surging waves will not o’erwhelm me,
I’m fearing neither wind or tide.

2 I’m standing on the Rock of Ages,
The angry winds go sweeping by;
No storm can shake the rock beneath me,
I’m singing as the waves dash high. [Refrain]

3 I’m standing on the Rock of Ages,
Though billows in their fury roll,
I’m trusting in the Lord forever,
No tempest can affright my soul. [Refrain]
