Full Text

1 Thou art my Rock, O blessed Redeemer;
Thou art my Refuge where I may hide;
Thou art my Rock to shelter and bless me;
Ever in Thee I safely abide.

Refrain:
Thou art my Rock, O blessed Redeemer;
Thou art my Friend and Thou art my Guide;
Thou art my Hope, and Thou art my Saviour,
Thou art my Trust; in Thee will I hide.

2 Thou art my Rock when sin is inviting;
Thou art my Rock when trial is near;
Thou art my Rock when sorrow is smiling,
Thou art my Rock; why then should I fear? [Refrain]

3 Thou art my Rock, temptations defying;
Thou art my Friend unchanging and sure;
Wholly on Thee my soul is relying,
Ever to keep me faithful and pure. [Refrain]

4 Thou art my Rock; when kingdom and nation,
Ruler and crown, have crumbled to dust,
Thou shalt remain my Rock of salvation,
Rock everlasting; Thee will I trust. [Refrain]
