Firm as a rock that in the mighty ocean




Firm as a rock,
that in the mighty ocean
Hurls back the waves,
and with majestic form,
Grand and sublime,
amid their wild commotion
Heeds not the tempest,
nor the raging storm.

Firm as a rock!
No pow’r shall cleave asunder,
Though lightnings flash
and thunders loudly roar;
So will we trust in Him,
our great Redeemer—
Jesus, our hiding place,
for evermore.



Firm as a rock,
that in the thirsty desert
Veils like a cloud
the noontide’s burning ray,
While with delight
the worn and weary trav’ller
Turns to its shadow
from his lonely way.

Firm as a rock!
No pow’r shall cleave asunder,
Though lightnings flash
and thunders loudly roar;
So will we trust in Him,
our great Redeemer—
Jesus, our hiding place,
for evermore.



Firm as a rock,
though surges dash around us;
Firm as a rock,
though trials dark may fall;
Yet shall we cling to Him,
the Rock of Ages,
Jesus, the Holy One,
our All in All.

Firm as a rock!
No pow’r shall cleave asunder,
Though lightnings flash
and thunders loudly roar;
So will we trust in Him,
our great Redeemer—
Jesus, our hiding place,
for evermore.



Firm as a rock,
when earthly scenes are waning;
Firm as a rock,
when Jordan’s billows roll;
Firm as a rock,
we’ll rest upon His promise;
Jesus, the Refuge
of the weary soul.

Firm as a rock!
No pow’r shall cleave asunder,
Though lightnings flash
and thunders loudly roar;
So will we trust in Him,
our great Redeemer—
Jesus, our hiding place,
for evermore.
