Representative Text

1 In the Rock of Ages hiding,
I have found a sure retreat;
In the refuge now abiding,
I have found a joy complete.

While the storm around me rages,
And the angry billows roar,
I am hiding in the Rock of Ages,
I am safe forevermore.

2 In the Rock of Ages resting,
I enjoy a sweet repose,
Where the grace of God forever,
Like a mighty river flows. [Refrain]

3 In the Rock of Ages trusting,
I am kept in perfect peace;
In the hope of glory waiting
Till the toil of life shall cease. [Refrain]
