“Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” Ps. 61. 2

J. Kent           L.M.

      1
When overwhelmed with doubts and fear,
 Great God, do thou my spirit cheer;
 Let not my eyes with tears be fed,
 But to the Rock of Ages led.

2
When guilt lies heavy on my soul,
 And waves of fierce temptation roll,
 I’d to this Rock for shelter flee,
 And make my refuge, Lord, in thee.

3
When sick, or faint, or sore dismayed,
 Then let my hopes on thee be stayed;
 Thy summit rising to the skies,
 Can shield my head when dangers rise.

4
When called the vale of death to tread,
 Then to this Rock may I be led.
 Nor fear to cross that gloomy sea,
 Since thou hast tasted death for me.
