"The Hiding Place "

Have you ever wished, deep down inside
That you could find a place to hide?
To hide from folks who come your way
With endless problems day by day?
To hide from all that lies ahead,
The unseen foes and griefs you dread?
To flee decisions you must make,
Avoid the path that you must take?
To run away and find a spot
Where even self can be forgot?

Earth has no place as such you seek --
No place of refuge for the weak;
For ev'ry shelter here on earth
Soon proves to be of little worth
And we are left alone to face
The woes that plague the human race.

But wait! The Rock of Ages -- He still stands,
A refuge from all life's demands;
A place to hide -- to weep -- to rest;
A place to hover and be blest.

For Jesus is that Rock Who stands
Holding forth His nail pierced hands --
A covert from the storm is He,
Saying, "Come, and hide in Me."

A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

Psalm 18:31 
For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?

1 Corinthians 10:4
And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that
spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

Aren't you glad that there is a hiding place in Christ Jesus?
Away from all of life's cares and worries? Oh, how God
bids us come and rest in Him. He is the Rock-- our feet
will not slip when the rain washes the soil beneath us.
We are anchored upon Christ Jesus and safe from the
storms that rage. Christians are not exempt from troubles
but we have the Lord, who guides us and sees us through
every trial and tribulation that comes our way. He gives
us peace in the midst of trials and joy in the midst of adversity.

Psalm 31:2 
Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou
my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.

Psalm 31:3 
For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for
thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
