A Shelter in the Time of Storm

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


Chorus:

    G                  D
Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
A             D       D7
A weary land, a weary land;
    G                    D
Oh, Jesus is a rock in a weary land,
                  A      D
A shelter in the time of storm.


A shade by day, defense by night;
No fears alarm, no foes affright;


The raging storms may ‘round us beat;
We’ll never leave our safe retreat;

O Rock divine, O Refuge dear;
Be Thou our helper ever near;
