Representative Text

1 No other refuge, Lord, have I;
Who can I trust but Thee?
Oh, fix my hope upon the Rock
That has been cleft for me.

Refrain:
The rifted Rock, the rifted Rock,
Oh may it shelter me;
My hope is on the rifted Rock,
That has been cleft for me.

2 Tho’ clouds obscure and dark the way,
Storms in wild fury rage,
Safe from alarm, I rest secure
Till Thou the storms assuage. [Refrain]

3 Come, stormy win; come, tempest shock;
Roll, billows of the sea;
I am secure within the Rock
That has been cleft for me. [Refrain]
