1 In the shadow of the rock let me rest,
When I feel the tempest’s shock thrill my breast,
All in vain the storm shall sweep while I hide,
And my tranquil vigil keep, by thy side.

Refrain:
In the shadow of the rock let me rest,
In the shadow of the rock let me rest;
When I feel the tempest’s shock thrill my breast,
In the shadow of the rock let me rest.

2 On the parched and desert way where I tread,
With the scorching noontide ray o’er my head,
Let me find a welcome shade, cool and still,
And my weary steps be stayed by thy will. [Refrain]

3 I in peace will rest me here till I see,
That the skies again are fair over me,
That the burning heats are past and the day,
Bids the traveler at last go his way. [Refrain]
