1. The Lord’s our Rock, in Him we hide, A Shelter in the time of storm; Secure whatever ill betide, A Shelter in the time of storm.

Refrain Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land, A weary land, a weary land; Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land, A Shelter in the time of storm.

2. A shade by day, defense by night, A Shelter in the time of storm; No fears alarm, no foes affright, A Shelter in the time of storm.

3. The raging storms may round us beat, A Shelter in the time of storm; We’ll never leave our safe retreat, A Shelter in the time of storm.

4. O Rock divine, O Refuge dear, A Shelter in the time of storm; Be Thou our helper ever near, A Shelter in the time of storm.
