1 Jesus, Thou my only refuge,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me;
As the storm clouds round me gather,
Let me hide myself in Thee.

Hide me, hide me, hide me;
Oh, my Savior, hide me;
While the stormy billows roll,
Thou the refuge of my soul.

2 Words and thoughts and best endeavor,
These for sin could not atone;
From the sea now raging round me,
Thou canst save, and Thou alone. [Refrain]

3 Earnestly I plead for mercy;
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
In the blood shed for redemption,
Wash me, Savior, or I die. [Refrain]

4 In Thy presence safely hide me,
While I draw this fleeting breath;
To the haven surely guide me,
When mine eyes shall close in death. [Refrain]

5 Hide me, oh, my Savior, hide me,
When I soar to worlds unknown;
When I shall, in Thy great glory,
See Thee on Thy judgment throne. [Refrain]

6 Then, forevermore, dear Savior,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Saved from death and sin and sorrow,
Let me hide myself in Thee. [Refrain]
