Representative Text

1. Standing on the Rock of Ages,
The Rock that shall endure,
Unshaken by the tempest,
Eternal, firm and sure;
There is a safe retreat,
A refuge strong and free,
Amid the stormy billows
Of life’s tempestuous sea.

Standing, standing,
Standing on the Rock of Ages,
Standing, standing,
No need have I to fear.

2. Standing on the Rock of Ages,
We view the tranquil soul,
Untroubled by the tempest,
Or surging billows’ roll;
Be dangers what they may,
And break the waves of care,
Amid the wild commotion,
We stand in safety there. [Refrain]

3. Standing on the Rock of Ages,
No need have we to fear,
God banishes our sorrow,
God wipes away our tear;
We’re watching, we believe,
We trust His promise sure,
That crowns of joy are waiting
For all His saints secure. [Refrain]
