Words by Fanny J. Crosby

Exodus 33:22
"And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by,
that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will
cover thee with my hand while I pass by:"

          A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
          A wonderful Savior to me;
          He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
          Where rivers of pleasure I see.

            Chorus
            He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
            That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
            He hideth my life with the depths of His love,
            And covers me there with His hand,
            And covers me there with His hand.

          A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
          He taketh my burden away;
          He holdeth me up, and I shall not be moved,
          He giveth me strength as my day.

            Chorus
            He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
            That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
            He hideth my life with the depths of His love,
            And covers me there with His hand,
            And covers me there with His hand.

          With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,
          And filled with His fullness divine,
          I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God
          For such a Redeemer as mine!

            Chorus
            He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
            That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
            He hideth my life with the depths of His love,
            And covers me there with His hand,
            And covers me there with His hand.

          When clothed in His brightness, transported I rise
          To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
          His perfect salvation, His wonderful love
          I'll shout with the millions on high.

            Chorus
            He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
            That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
            He hideth my life with the depths of His love,
            And covers me there with His hand,
            And covers me there with His hand.
