Representative Text

1 Today I’m resting on the Rock,
Unchanging, firm and sure;
‘Twill stand the tempest’s wildest shock,
Forever will endure.

Refrain:
The Rock, the Rock, the blessed Rock,
A refuge still will be;
The Rock, the Rock, the precious Rock,
‘Twas cleft for you and me.

2 Once I was in the miry clay,
Poor, wretched and undone;
But on the Rock I stand today,
Christ vict’ry for me won. [Refrain]

3 The blessed Rock, poor soul, is free,
For you to build upon;
‘Tis it alone can shelter thee,
When earth’s vain hopes are gone. [Refrain]

4 O come and trust the living Rock,
The Christ who died for thee;
Come, sinner, come tho’ others mock,
To Him for safety flee. [Refrain]
