Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


In the Rock of Ag­es hid­ing,
I have found a sure re­treat;
In the Re­fuge now abid­ing,
I have found a joy com­plete.


While the storm around me rag­es,
And the ang­ry bil­lows roar,
I am hid­ing in the Rock of Ag­es,
I am safe for­ev­er­more.

In the Rock of Ag­es rest­ing,
I en­joy a sweet re­pose;
Where the grace of God for­ev­er
Like a migh­ty ri­ver flows.


In the Rock of Ag­es trust­ing,
I am kept in per­fect peace;
In the hope of glo­ry wait­ing,
Till the toil of life shall cease.
