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.

Refrain:
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]
