Capo 2


VERSE: 1

    F                       Bb
Convinced as a sinner, to Jesus I come,

    F                       Bb            C
Informed by the gospel for such there is room;

    Dm             C        Bb
Overwhelmed with sorrow for sin will I cry,

     Dm             C        Bb
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I! 


VERSE: 2

     F                     Bb
When tempted by Satan my Saviour to leave, 

    F                       Bb        C
Who sets forth religion as meant to deceive, 

      Dm         C          Bb
I'll claim my relation to Jesus on high— 

     Bb         C             Bb      C   F
The Rock of Salvation that is higher than I! 


VERSE: 3

      F                     Bb
When God from my soul shall his presence remove 

    F                       Bb        C
To try by his absence the strength of my love, 

     Dm            C         Bb
I'll rest on the promise of Jesus, and try 

     Dm            C             Bb      C  F
The force of that Rock which is higher than I! 


VERSE: 4

      F                     Bb
When sorely afflicted, and ready to faint, 

        F                  Bb        C
Before my Redeemer I'll spread my complaint; 

       Dm             C          Bb
'Midst storms and distresses my soul shall rely 

    Dm         C             Bb    C   F
On Jesus, the Rock that is higher than I! 


VERSE: 5

      F                         Bb
When weak and encompassed with numberless-foes, 

      F                   Bb       C
Attempting my happiness here to oppose, 

     Dm             C        Bb
I'll look to the Saviour of sinners, and cry, 

  Dm            C             Bb    C   F
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I! 


VERSE: 6

     F                       Bb
When I my poor feelings with others compare, 
   
    F                           Bb        C
And learn from reflection what mercies I share!

    Dm           C        Bb
My backsliding heart is constraint! to reply, 

   Dm           C             Bb    C   F
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I! 


VERSE: 7

      F                          Bb
When judgements, O Lord, are abroad in the land, 

     F                     Bb            C
And merited vengeance descends from thy hand! 

    Dm                C             Bb
O'erwhelmed with the sight, for protection I'll fly, 

     Dm         C             Bb     C   F
And hide in the Rock that is higher than I! 


VERSE: 8

      F                       Bb
When summoned by death before God to appear, 

    F                            Bb            C
Thy free-grace supporting, I'll yield without fear! 

      Dm            C          Bb
Most gladly I'll venture with Jesus on high,

    Dm        C             Bb    C   F
To enter the Rock that is higher than I! 


VERSE: 9

      F                        Bb
'Tis there, with the chosen of Jesus, I long 
 
    F                     Bb         C
To dwell, and eternally join in the song 

    Dm             C            Bb
Of praising and blessing, with angels on high, 

        Dm         C             Bb    C   F
Christ Jesus, the Rock that is higher than I!
