Will you pray with me?
Rock of refuge, hear my call.
Hold my hand that I not fall.
Guard my heart, and make it Thine.
Lead me in the path divine.
Earth and Heaven You display,
Work Your wonders here today.
Boldly, as I face the beast,
Do I ask for Your release.
Set my feet upon Your rock;
Guide my footsteps and my talk.
Keep deceit and lying oath
From my lips’ indulgent growth.
As offenders sharpen swords,
With their most malicious words,
May Your Rock their swords scrape dull,
That their phrasings be made null.
You my firmest foothold be,
Rock Almighty, ever strong,
Be Thou honored by my song.
