High as the mountain tho’ the billows roll,
In Jesus’ keeping I will trust my soul;
He can the raging seas and wind control,
In the cleft of the rock He will hide me.

Refrain

Hide me, safely hide me,
Hide me, safely hide me,
Hide me from all danger,
In the Rock that was cleft for me.

O soul, be faithful, to the end endure,
Trusting His promises forever sure;
Kept in the fortress of His love secure,
In the cleft of the rock He will hide me.

Refrain

When thro’ the Jordan I must take my way,
His staff will comfort me and be my stay;
Over the river there is endless day,
In the cleft of the rock He will hide me.

Refrain
