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.

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]
