O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
In the rifted Rock I'm resting,
Safely sheltered, I abide;
There no foes nor storms molest me,
While within the cleft I hide.

Long pursued by sin and Satan,
Weary, sad, I longed for rest;
Then I found this heav'nly shelter
Opened in my Saviour's breast.

Peace, which passeth understanding,
Joy, the world can never give
Now in Jesus I am finding;
In His smiles of love I live.

In the rifted Rock I'll hide me
Till the storms of life are past;
All secure in this blest refuge,
Heeding not the fiercest blast.

Chorus:
Now I'm resting, sweetly resting,
In the cleft once made for me;
Jesus, blessed Rock of Ages,
I will hide myself in Thee.
