The cleft of the Rock

Full Text

1 There's a cleft in the Rock of Ages,
Where my soul may safely hide
While the storms of life are raging
And the billows roll o'er the tide.

Refrain:
Oh, the cleft of the Rock,
Where my soul may hide,
While the storms of life are raging,
And the billows roll o'er the tide.

2 There is peace for the soul that hideth
In the Rock that is higher than I,
For the soul that only confideth
And the cleft of the Rock will try. [Refrain]

3 Oh, soul, thou who now art weary,
To the Rock do come for rest,
Come to Him who only can cheer thee,
To the dear loving Saviour's breast. [Refrain]
