Representative Text

1 Lo! the strong and mighty passions,
Round the sinner sweep;
In the path of fierce temptations,
Shall he dare to sleep?

’Neath the Rock of Ages hiding,
To this covert fly;
In the love of Christ abiding,
Danger passeth by.

2 Thro’ the lines of error stalking,
Satan finds his way;
In the path where he is walking,
Shall the sinner stay? [Refrain]

3 When the hour of trial neareth,
Sorrow shall betide;
In the day when God appeareth,
Shall the soul abide? [Refrain]
