Sweetly Resting

    1. In the rifted rock I’m resting,
      Safely sheltered I abide;
      There no foes nor storms molest me,
      While within the cleft I hide.
      • Chorus:
        Now I’m resting, sweetly resting,
        In the cleft once made for me;
        Jesus, blessed Rock of Ages,
        I will hide myself in Thee.
    2. Long pursued by sin and Satan,
      Weary, sad, I longed for rest;
      Then I found this heav’nly shelter
      Opened in my Savior’s breast.
      Chorus:

      Peace which passeth understanding,
      Joy the world can never give,
      Now in Jesus I am finding,
      In His smiles of love I live.
    3. Chorus:
    4. In the rifted rock I’ll hide me,
      Till the storms of life are past;
      All secure in this blest refuge,
      Heeding not the fiercest blast.
      Chorus:


      We sung this lovely hymn at church this morning, 
      and the lyrics are still playing through my mind.
       Beautiful!

Is it just my computer, or are the words on all your posts showing up white on a white background?
