Representative Text

Rock of ages, hide my soul,
Keep me while the billows roll;
When the threat’ning waves I see,
Let me ever hide in Thee.

Hide me, blessed Rock of ages,
Hide my soul in Thee.

2 Safely in that Rock I hide,
While it breaks the rolling tide:
He whose pow’r controls the deep,
Stands my helpless soul to keep. [Refrain]

3 Rock of ages stands today,
Like a monarch in the fray;
Tested by the greatest storm,
Yet unshaken is its form. [Refrain]
