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