Representative Text

1 The pitfalls in sin’s awful path
Once caught and held me fast,
But Jesus came and saved from wrath,
I’m on the Rock at last.

Refrain:
I’m on the Rock at last, at last,
I’m on the Rock at last;
My feet have found a resting place,
I’m on the Rock at last.

2 Old Satan led thro’ mire and sand,
And thorns before me cast,
But, by the Saviour’s mighty pow’r,
I’m on the Rock at last. [Refrain]

3 On sin’s wild sea I’ll sail no more,
All danger now is past,
The raging tempests all are o’er,
I’m on the Rock at last. [Refrain]

4 I have escaped the burning sand,
The desert’s fiery blast,
I’m bound for heaven’s shining strand,
I’m on the Rock at last. [Refrain]
