The Rock of Heaven (Pearson text)
The Rock of Heaven is my God,
My Everlasting King.
He made the sun, the moon, the stars,
And set them on their wings.
He made the earth and all that lives
To follow His commands.
Yet He loves me and keeps me in
The Hollow of His hand.
The Rock of heaven is my strength,
My fortress, and my shield.
He is the cornerstone of faith;
The hope on which I build.
And though the evil tempest howls
And some are lost to sin,
His mighty bulwark is not moved
And I shall rest with Him.
The Rock gave Isra'l heaven's bread
And when for thirst they groaned,
Twice Moses struck the Rock of Hope
And founts of mercy flowed.
So my Rock in Gethsemane
Once bled to pay my sin
Then, crucified on Calvary,
My Rock saved me again.
The Rock of Heaven is my hope
Though born to sin, I trust in Him
To raise and ransom me.
The Rock is ever my defense:
I'm safe within His hands.
And when I come before His throne
Upon the Rock I'll stand.
