Philip P. Bliss (1838–1876)


In Zion’s rock abiding,
My soul her triumph sings;
In His pavilion hiding,
I praise the King of kings.


My high tower is He!
To Him will I flee;
In Him confide, in Him abide;
My high tower is He!

Wild waves are round me swelling,
Dark clouds above I see;
Yet, in my fortress dwelling,
More safe I cannot be.


My tower of strength can ne­ver
In time of trouble fail;
No power of hell, for­ev­er,
Against it shall prevail.
