|149 - The clefted Rock|
In the clefted Rock I hide,
Savior, let me here abide;
Sheltered from each stormy gale,
All secure within the vale.
Blessed Rock, on Thee I build,|
Ever be my sun and shield;
Help me labor, watch, and pray,
Ready for the crowning day.
Tempest-tossed I came to Thee,|
Precious shelter made for me;
Cleansed and purified from sin,
Thou didst freely take me in.
When the surging billows roll,|
There's a calm within my soul;
While my trust in Thee is stayed,
I shall never be afraid.
Rock of safety—blest abode,|
Hid away with Christ in God;
Nothing can I want beside,
For my soul is satisfied.
When this earthly house shall fall,|
And my days are numbered all,
Then my house not made with hands,
Evermore in glory stands.
Then, dear Jesus, keep me hid,|
That I e'er be found amid
Choicest jewels of Thy care,
When in glory I appear.
