“While My glory passes by I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with My hand until I have passed by.”¬†– Exodus 33:22

He Hideth My Soul

Verse 1:
A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
A wonderful Savior to me;
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
Where rivers of pleasure I see.

Chorus:
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
He hideth my life in the depths of His love
And covers me there with His hand,
And covers me there with His hand.

Verse 2:
A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
He taketh my burden away;
He holdeth me up, and I shall not be moved,
He giveth me strength as my day.

Chorus

Verse 3:
With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,
And filled with His fullness divine,
I sing in my rapture, “Oh, glory to God
For such a Redeemer as mine!”

Chorus

Verse 4:
When clothed in His brightness, transported I rise
To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
His perfect salvation, His wonderful love
I’ll shout with the millions on high!

Chorus
