In my soul oft rises,
Bringing pain and woe,
The alarming question,
Am I saved or no?
Then the Word brings comfort,
It doth fully show:
Tho’ my faith may waver,
Christ, the Rock, stands fast.

Refrain

The Rock stands fast!
The Rock stands fast!
Tho’ my faith may waver,
Christ, the Rock, stands fast!
The Rock stands fast!
the Rock stands fast!
Glory be to God,
Christ, the Rock, stands fast!

When before me marshaled
All my sins arise,
Swords of flame that bar
The gates of paradise;
Tho’ oppressed with doubtings,
Still my soul replies,
Tho’ my faith may waver,
Christ, the Rock, stands fast!

Refrain

While life’s storm is raging,
Heaping up hope’s wrecks,
While delights allure
And sore temptations vex,
I will cry, tho’ fears
And doubts my soul perplex,
Tho’ my faith may waver,
Christ, the Rock, stands fast!

Refrain
