O Thou Rock of my salvation,
Hope and refuge of my soul,
Thou wilt hide me when the tempest
And the stormy billows roll.
I will sing of Thy redemption
And proclaim the wondrous grace
That beyond the vale and shadow
Has prepared for me a place.
Thou who didst so kindly watch me,
Ere my heart to Thee I gave,
Thou whose love has paid my ransom,
Can I doubt Thy power to save?
Thou who art my staff and comfort,
While this fleeting life shall last,
I will trust Thee for the future,
And adore Thee for the past.
