1 In the riven Rock there’s a refuge for my soul,
When the light’nings flash and the mighty thunders roll;
For I heard a voice that so sweetly said to me,
“In my bleeding side there’s a hiding-place for thee.”

In the riven Rock I am hiding from the storm,
Hiding from the storm, hiding from the storm;
In the riven Rock I am hiding from the storm,
In the Rock that was cleft for me.

2 In the riven Rock there is room for many more;
There’s a stream to cleanse, there is mercy to restore;
Come to Jesus now, for a shelter sure and sweet;
He will keep you still when the swelling currents meet. [Refrain]

3 In the riven Rock there are blessed songs that ring,
Songs of peace and joy unto heav’n’s eternal King;
I will praise him, too, I will sing his grace so free,
For my Saviour’s side is a hiding-place for me. [Refrain]
