1. When the hopes that smile today
With the morrow pass away;
When the flowers that pleasure weaves
Fade and fall  like autumn leaves:

Refrain
Thou my shield and strength divine,
Closer draw my love to Thine;
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.

2. When my heart with toils oppressed
Vainly seeks the balm of rest;
When beset with trials deep,
Throbbing cares that will not sleep: [Refrain]

3. When afflictions o’er my soul
Like the waves of ocean roll:
When the clouds above me frown
And my burden weighs me down: [Refrain]

4. When the storms of life shall cease,
When the waves are hushed in peace;
When I reach my home at last,
Every danger safely passed: [Refrain]
