The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.@Psalm 18:2

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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

Refrain
