As Swiftly My Days Go Out On the Wing

Hymns (1948, 1979), no. 5

1. As swiftly my days go out on the wing, As onward my bark drifts over the sea, O Father in heav’n this song will I sing: The rock of my refuge is Thee, The rock of my refuge is Thee.

Rock of my refuge so sure, Rock of my refuge so strong; O hide me therein From danger and sin, While here I am singing my song.

2. Dark sorrow may come with many a sting; Stern trials in life my portion may be, O Father in heav’n this song will I sing: The rock of my refuge is Thee, The rock of my refuge is Thee.

Rock of my refuge so sure, Rock of my refuge so strong; O hide me therein From danger and sin, While here I am singing my song.

3. Till angels of light my summons shall bring, Till upward with joy my spirit shall flee, O Father in heav’n this song will I sing: The rock of my refuge is Thee, The rock of my refuge is Thee.

Rock of my refuge so sure, Rock of my refuge so strong; O hide me therein From danger and sin, While here I am singing my song.
