1. Sometimes I feel discouraged, and think my life in vain.
I'm tempted then to murmur, and of my lot complain;
But when I think of Jesus, and all He's done for me,
Then I cry, O Rock of Ages, hide Thou me.
O Rock of Ages, hide Thou me,
No other refuge, have I but Thee.
When life's dark vale I wander, far, far from Thee;
Then, I cry, O Rock of Ages, hide Thou me.
2. Sometimes it seems I dare not go one step farther on,
And from my heart all courage has disappeared and gone;
But, I remember Jesus, and all His love for me,
Then, I cry, O Rock of Ages, hid Thou me.
3. O what a friend is Jesus, sure Anchor for my soul,
So tender, true and gracious, I'm safe in His control;
My help in time of danger, my strong defense is He;
O Thou blessed Rock of Ages, hide Thou me.
