Tis the Higher Rock that gives me
Faith's glad strength for every hour;
Oh to measure all its gladness,
All its preciousness of power !
Tis the Higher Rock that saves me,
Tis the Higher Rock I've found,
Where abide the crowning graces—
Faith and Hope and Love abound.
Tis the Higher Rock sustains me
Joyously from day to day ;
lifting heart, and soul, and spirit,
To the purer, holier way.
So will I sing praises to Thee—
For Thy wondrous power to save ;
Daily 'neath Thy shadow resting,
Till the victor's palm I wave.
