1 Behold, a stone in Zion laid,
A tried, a sure foundation stone;
Thrice blest are they whose hopes are staid
Upon this base, and this alone.

Refrain:
Some build their hopes on the ever-drifting sand,
Some on their fame, or their treasure, or their land;
Mine's on a Rock that forever will stand,
Jesus, the "Rock of Ages."

2 Storms may arise, and tempests blow,
And beat with fury on this Rock,
Still it remains, though waves o'erflow,
Unmoved amid the fiercest shock. [Refrain]

3 Ne'er shall the gates of hell prevail
O'er those who in the Lord abide;
Safely they dwell, though foes assail,
Forever near the Savior's side. [Refrain]
