Hiding in Thee
Words by William O. Cushing
Music by Ira D. Sankey

Psalm 143:9
"Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies:
I flee unto thee to hide me."

divider

          O safe to the Rock that is higher than I,
          My soul in its conflicts and sorrows would fly;
          So sinful, so weary, Thine, Thine, would I be;
          Thou blest "Rock of Ages," I'm hiding in Thee.

            Chorus
            Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee,
            Thou blest "Rock of Ages,"
            I'm hiding in Thee.

          In the calm of the noontide, in sorrow's lone hour,
          In times when temptation casts o'er me its pow'r;
          In the tempests of life, on its wide, heaving sea,
          Thou blest "Rock of Ages," I'm hiding in Thee.

            Chorus
            Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee,
            Thou blest "Rock of Ages,"
            I'm hiding in Thee.

          How oft in the conflict, when pressed by the foe,
          I have fled to my Refuge and breathed out my woe;
          How often, when trials like sea billows roll,
          Have I hidden in Thee, O Thou Rock of my soul.

            Chorus
            Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee,
            Thou blest "Rock of Ages,"
            I'm hiding in Thee.
