We recently acquired some very nice CD's featuring some Mennonite singers. One of them has a song I really like, but try as I could, I was not able to find the hymn in my fairly large collection of older hymnbooks. My husband Philip found it in a hymnbook he got from his dad's estate, but it's done with shaped notes. I was impressed to look in my Nazarene hymnbook and there it was! I love the music and the words. My friend Frank found a video of the song. I pray that the words will be a blessing to you, as they've been to me.

In the rifted rock I'm resting; Safely sheltered I abide;
There no fores or storms molest me, While within the cleft I hide.
Now I'm resting, sweetly resting, In the cleft once made for me;
Jesus, blessed Rock of Ages, I will hide myself in Thee.
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.
