Representative Text

1 What tho’ the shadows gather around me,
Like a glad bird my heart ever sings;
Kept by His grace, I’m ever abiding
Safe on the Christ-Rock, under His wings.

Refrain:
Safe on the Christ-Rock I am abiding,
Wonderful peace and assurance it brings,
Trusting my Saviour, nothing can harm me,
Safe on the Christ-Rock, under His wings.

2 Joyful communion, fellowship holy,
Bring to my spirit wonderful things;
In the sweet stillness haven seems nearer,
Safe on the Christ-Rock, under His wings. [Refrain]

3 Life everlasting Jesus hath promised,
O the sweet joy and comfort it brings;
Trusting His grace, I know He will keep me
Safe on the Christ-Rock, under His wings. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
