FABER'S HYMNS..
The Shadow of the Rock! Night veils the land; How the palms whisper as they stand I How the well tinkles faintly through the sand ! Cool water take Thy thirst to slake, Rest in the Shadow of the Rock.
The Shadow of the Rock! Abide 1 Abide ! This Rock moves ever at thy side, Pausing to welcome thee at eventide. Ages are laid Beneath its shade, Rest in the Shadow of the Rock.
The Shadow of the Rock! Always at hand, Unseen it cools the noon-tide land, And quells the fire that flickers in the sand. It comes in sight Only at night, Rest in the Shadow of the Rock.
The Shadow of the Rock ! Mid skies storm-riven It gathers shadows out of Heaven, And holds them o'er us all night cool and even Through the charmed air Dew falls not there, Rest in the Shadow of the Rock.
