Representative Text

1 When weary and worn with the burdens of life,
And the soul has grown faint in the battling and strife,
Then to Thee, O my God, in my anguish I cry;
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

Refrain:
Lead, O lead me!
Lead me to the Rock,
Lead me to the Rock,
Lead me to the Rock,
That is higher than I!

2 When tempted by evil to wander away
From the path Thou hast made to the realms of bright day,
Then to Thee, O my Saviour my Refuge I fly;
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. [Refrain]

3 When done with the ills that beset us below,
And the swelling of Jordan is near me, I know,
Then on Thee, O my Saviour my hopes I rely;
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. [Refrain]
