Jesus is a Rock in a Weary Land

Representative Text

Refrain:
Jesus is a rock in a weary land,
a weary land, a weary land;
My Jesus is a rock in a weary land,
a shelter in the time of storm.

1 No man can do like Jesus,
Not a mumbling word He said;
He went walking down to Lazarus’ grave,
And He raised him from the dead. [Refrain]

2 When Jesus was on earth,
The flesh was very weak;
He girdled himself with a tow'l,
And washed his disciples feet. [Refrain]

3 Yonder comes my Savior,
Him whom I love so well;
He has the palm of victory,
And the keys of death and Hell. [Refrain
