1 Out amid the waves of ocean,
Raging oft in wild commotion,
Kept securely I am singing,
For to Christ my soul is clinging,
Safe when comes the tempest’s shock,
Resting on the solid Rock.
On the Rock, on the Rock,
Resting safely on the Rock;
On the Rock, the solid Rock,
Resting safely on the Rock.
2 What though darkness now surround me?
What though winds be howling round me,
Threatening me with desolation?
Christ the Rock is my salvation!
Calm amid the wildest shock,
On the everlasting Rock. [Refrain]
3 With my Saviour, what can harm me?
Satan’s hosts cannot alarm me!
Jesus’ mighty arms enclosing,
Sweetly is my soul reposing,
Sheltered from the fiercest shock,
By the ever-blessed Rock. [Refrain]
4 Praise the Rock of our salvation!
With increasing adoration,
Laud and bless His name for ever,
From whose love no force can sever!
Saved, we wait the final shock
On the string eternal Rock. [Refrain]
