Representative Text

1 O Rock of Refuge, Saviour, Friend,
O’er me Thy shelt’ring arms extend,
And evermore my soul defend;
O hear, and shelter me;
With trembling hope to Thee I fly,
Do not my eager suit deny;
Receive me, save me, or I die;
I trust alone in Thee.

2 O Rock of Refuge, in Thy grace
Receive me to Thy blest embrace;
Grant me the longed for hiding place;
Elsewhere I cannot go;
In Thy dear bosom let me hide,
And evermore in Thee abide;
No ill shall then my soul betide,
Nor fear of coming woe.

3 O Rock of Refuge, Thou canst give
Abiding rest, and bid me live;
A weary, helpless fugitive,
Let me Thy shelter claim;
No foe Thy presence shall invade,
Or ever make my soul afraid;
Secure within Thy gracious shade,
I sing of Thy dear name.
