A Shelter in the Time of Storm
Words by Vernon J. Charlesworth

Isaiah 25:4
"For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy
in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat,
when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall."

          The Lord's our Rock, in Him we hide,
          A shelter in the time of storm;
          Secure whatever ill betide,
          A shelter in the time of storm.

            Chorus
            Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
            A weary land, a weary land;
            Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
            A shelter in the time of storm.

          A shade by day, defense by night,
          A shelter in the time of storm;
          No fears alarm, no foes afright,
          A shelter in the time of storm.

            Chorus
            Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
            A weary land, a weary land;
            Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
            A shelter in the time of storm.

          The raging storms may round us beat,
          A shelter in the time of storm
          We'll never leave our safe retreat,
          A shelter in the time of storm.

            Chorus
            Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
            A weary land, a weary land;
            Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
            A shelter in the time of storm.

          O Rock divine, O Refuge dear,
          A shelter in the time of storm;
          Be Thou our helper ever near,
          A shelter in the time of storm.

            Chorus
            Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
            A weary land, a weary land;
            Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
            A shelter in the time of storm.
