Sweetly Resting

by Mary. D. James

In the rifted Rock I'm resting,
Safely shelter'd I abide;
There no foes nor storms molest me.
While within the cleft I hide.

Long pursued by sin and Satan,
Weary, sad, I longed for rest;
Then I found this heav'nly shelter,
Opened in my Saviour's breast.

Peace, which passeth understanding
Joy, the world can never give,
Now in Jesus I am finding;
In His smiles of love I live.

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.

Now I'm resting,
Sweetly resting,
In the cleft once made for me;
Jesus, blessed Rock of Ages,
I will hide myself in thee.
