Words by Frances (Fanny) J. Crosby (1820-1915), 1890
Tune: HE HIDETH MY SOUL by William J. Kirkpatrick (1838-1921), 1890
Key Signature: D Major (2 sharps)
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.
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.
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!
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.
Refrain: 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.
