Representative Text

1 Storms of life may beat around me,
Hidden dangers may surround me,
But no evil shall confound me
In the everlasting arms.

Safely sheltered in the Rock of Ages,
Tho’ the tempest round about me rages;
Shielded from all fear and harm
In the everlasting arms.

2 In the riven Rock I’m hiding,
In the Lord of hosts confiding;
Safely He my soul is guiding
By His everlasting arms. [Refrain]

3 How can I be sad and weary,
Or my days be dark and dreary,
Flooded by His sunlight cheery,
In His everlasting arms. [Refrain]

4 Voices of the world are calling,
Dangers may be fierce, appalling,
But I shall be kept from falling
By His everlasting arms. [Refrain]
