Shelter me, O Rock of ages

Representative Text

1 Shelter me, O Rock of Ages,
Safe in thee now let me hide;
Wild the tempest 'round me rages,
Fiercely beats the surging tide.

Chorus:
Shelter me, O Rock of Ages,
Evermore my refuge be;
Shelter me, O Rock of Ages,
Clings my helpless souls to thee.

2 Earth's supports from me are drifting,
Only thou dost steadfast prove;
To thy height my soul uplifting,
Grant me refuge, naught can move. [Chorus]

3 Blessed Rock, in thee abiding,
Tho' the angry billows roll;
In eternal strength confiding,
Holy calm shall fill my soul. [Chorus]

4 From the storm of time retreating,
To thy sacred cleft I flee;
Other help is vain and fleeting,
Rock of Ages, shelter me. [Chorus]
