Psalm 42

          1. As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
          2. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God:  when shall I come and appear before God?
          3. My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me,
            Where is thy God?
          4. When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me:  for I had gone with the multitude,
            I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
          5. Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God:
            for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

          In times like these you need a Savior,
          In times like these you need an anchor;
          Be very sure, Be very sure,
          Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

            Chorus
            This Rock is Jesus, Yes, He's the One,
            The Rock is Jesus, The only One;
            Be very sure, Be very sure,
            Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

          In times like these you need the Bible,
          In times like these, oh be not idle;
          Be very sure, Be very sure,

          Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

            Chorus
            This Rock is Jesus, Yes, He's the One,
            The Rock is Jesus, The only One;
            Be very sure, Be very sure,
            Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

          In times like these I have a Savior,
          In times like these I have an anchor;
          I'm very sure, I'm very sure,
          My anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

            Chorus
            This Rock is Jesus, Yes, He's the One,
            The Rock is Jesus, The only One;
            Be very sure, Be very sure,
            Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!
