16032. The Rock Amid The Waves

1 There stands a Rock amid the waves,
O mariner, be not af­raid;
When surg­es roll He sweet­ly saves:
In His dear name, be not afraid.

Refrain:
There is a Rock amid the waves,
A migh­ty Rock amid the waves;
O, hal­le­lu­jah, how He saves,
This blessed Rock amid the waves.

2 When clouds are dense around your bark,
And when the wind in an­ger raves,
Sail on and trust, nor fear the dark,
There is a Rock amid the waves. [Refrain]

3 When wild winds rave and bil­lows roll,
There’s safe­ty near the One who saves;
For every lov­ing, trust­ing soul,
There is a Rock amid the waves. [Refrain]

4 Are you up­on the sea alone?
Friends gone whose love your sad heart craves?
He sees the tear­drops of His own,
This bless­ed Rock amid the waves. [Refrain]

5 We’ll reach the har­bor some glad day,
Where dwell the hosts He sweet­ly saves,
Where all the tears are wiped away,
By this great Rock among the waves. [Refrain]
