LEAD ME TO THE ROCK THAT IS HIGHER THAN I (Song Lyrics)

I took this stunning photo yesterday from inside a train …

Lead Me to the Rock that is Higher than I

Chorus
Oh! Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the Rock and there let me lie
Safe and protected, sheltered and dry
Cradled in Your arms as the waves crash nearby

I can’t stand on my own anymore
I’m losing sight of the distant shore
I need help from the One I adore
I cry out from my very heart’s core

Stability is so hard to find
My body’s weak, confusion in mind
Looking in wrong places, peace to find
Desperate to escape, to unwind

Please lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus

My fading eyesight wanders away
Dark waters close in with each new day
The sun has lost its warm healing ray
Lord, I’m so sorry, I’ll kneel and pray

My Father, without You, I am lost
I know how much for Your Son, it cost
It cost Him, cost You ’cause I was lost
You’re my Rock, forever. At all cost

Chorus
Oh! Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the Rock and there let me lie
Safe and protected, sheltered and dry
Cradled in Your arms as the waves crash nearby

Oh! Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus

Chorus
Oh! Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the Rock and there let me lie
Safe and protected, sheltered and dry
Cradled in Your arms as the waves crash nearby

Psalm 61:1-4
Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For Thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide in Thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of Thy wings. Selah.

    1. Thank you precious friend. Did you see my comment below? Between the photo and my reading Psalm 61:2 and someone else reading this particular post, I just had to repost it and share in God’s amazing way of leading us. Of His absolutely breathtaking creation.

  1. I never fail to be amazed at how the Lord can ‘highlight’ a verse as one spends precious time with Him, and then you find that someone has also been led to that specific verse in song or poem on the same day. I’m almost coming to expect it to be so … He is so beautiful and wonderful and …
