In the rifted Rock I'm resting,
Safely sheltered, I abide;
There no foes nor storms molest me,
While within the cleft I hide.
Chorus: Now I'm resting, sweetly resting,
In the cleft once made for me:
Jesus, blessed Rock of Ages,
I will hide myself in Thee.
Long pursued by sin and Satan,
Weary, sad I longed for rest;
Then I found this heav'nly shelter,
Opened in my Saviour's breast.
Peace which passeth understanding,
Joy, the world can never give,
Now in Jesus I am finding;
In His smiles of love I live.
In the Rifted Rock I'll hide me,
Till the storms of life are past,
All secure in this blest refuge,
Heeding not the fiercest blast.
