1. The shadow of the Rock!
Stay, pilgrim, stay!
Night treads upon the heels of day;
There is no other resting place this way.
The Rock is near,
The well is clear
Rest in the shadow of the Rock!
 
2. The shadow of the Rock!
The desert wide
Lies round thee like a trackless tide,
In waves of sand forlornly multiplied.
The sun is gone
Thou art alone
Rest in the shadow of the Rock!
 
3. The shadow of the Rock!
'Mid skies stormriv'n
It gathers shadows out of heaven,
And holds them o'er us all night cool and ev'n.
And thro' charm'd air
Dew falls not there
Rest in the shadow of the Rock!
 
4. The shadow of the Rock!
To weary feet,
That have been diligent and fleet,
The sleep is deeper and the shade more sweet.
O weary, rest!
Thou'rt sorely passed
Rest in the shadow of the Rock!
 
5. The shadow of the Rock!
Pilgrim, sleep sound;
In night's swift hours with silent bound,
The Rock will put thee over leagues of ground,
Thou'it gain more way
By night than day
Rest in the shadow of the Rock!
