1 In the shelter of the Rock,
I am resting;
Tho’ the angry billows mock,
I am resting;
I can stem the wind and tide,
In the shelter of His side,
And in safety there abide,
Sweetly resting.

Refrain:
I am resting,
I am resting;
In the shelter of the Rock,
I am resting;
I am resting,
I am resting;
In the shelter of the Rock,
I am resting.

2 In the favor of the King,
I am resting;
In the shadow of His wing,
I am resting;
Since I learned to love my Lord,
And obey His holy word,
Ev’ry day comes sweet reward,
I am resting. [Refrain]

3 In my strong and mighty Tow’r,
I am resting;
He upholds me by His pow’r,
I am resting;
Oh, a wondrous help is He,
In my weakness strengthens me,
Oh, the blessedness to be
In Him resting. [Refrain]

4 Christ, my Rock, my Tow’r, my King,
Blessed resting,
In the shadow of His wing,
I am resting;
Rock of safety for my feet,
Tow’r of strength, when foes I meet,
Christ, my King, O joy complete,
Blessed resting! [Refrain]
