When The Tempest High Is Raging


When the tempest high is raging,
O thou Master of the sea,
Be my Refuge; Rock of Ages,
Shelter me!

Refrain:
Shelter me, shelter me!
O my everlasting Refuge, shelter me!
Shelter me, shelter me!
Rock of Ages, shelter me!

When amid success and pleasure
I would wander, ever be
Watching guarding; blessed Master,
Shelter me! [Refrain]

When I’m weak, and sorely tempted,
Then, O Master, unto thee
Would I turn for thy protection;
Shelter me! [Refrain]

When, at last, my labor’s ended,
And the judgment I shall see,
O eternal Rock of Ages,
Shelter me! [Refrain]
