#259: The Rock That Is Higher Than I

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

O sometimes the shadows are deep,

And rough seems the path to the goal;

And sorrows, sometimes how they sweep

Like tempests down over the soul!

CHORUS

O then to the Rock let my fly, (let me fly),

To the Rock that is higher than I; (is higher than I);

O then to the Rock let my fly, (let my fly),

To the Rock that is higher than I!

2

O sometimes how long seems the day,

And sometimes how weary my feet;

But toiling in life’s dusty way,

The Rock’s blessed shadow, how sweet!

CHORUS

3

O near to the Rock let me keep,

If  blessings or sorrows prevail;

Or climbing the mountain-way steep,

Or walking the shadowy vale.

CHORUS
