1 Thou Rock of my salvation, haste,
Extend Thine ample shade;
And let it over me be cast,
To screen my naked head.
In the Rock’s blessed shadow,
I am resting, resting, resting;
In the Rock’s blessed shadow, I am resting;
Sweetly resting in its shade.
2 Defend me in this trying hour;
My sure protection be;
My shelter from the tempest’s pow’r,
Till I am fixed on Thee. [Refrain]
3 O set upon Thyself my feet,
And make me surely stand!
From fierce temptation’s rage and heat,
Protect me with Thy hand. [Refrain]
4 Now let me in the cleft be placed,
Nor my defence remove;
Within Thine arms of love embraced,
Thine arms of endless love. [Refrain]
