"LEAD ME TO THE ROCK"

Verse 1
There are times I realize dream houses I've been building
Are only castles in the sand,
And I feel just like my life and happiness in living
Is swept away along with all my plans.
Don't know what to hang on to, or what to let go;
In my distress I pray from depths below:

Chorus 1
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.
Give me wings of love, and teach me to fly.
When the storms of this life rage way out of hand,
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I am.

Verse 2
Like Peter of old, stepping out upon the waves,
A look into his Master's face made him so brave.
But if we, like him, lose heart and watch those stormy seas,
We've got to call out, "Lord, save me please! Save me please!"

Chorus 2
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.
Give me wings of love, teach me to fly.
When the storms of this life rage way out of hand,
Lead me to the Rock that is higher!

Interlude:

Wo-o-woh---

Chorus 3
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.
Give me wings of love, and teach me to fly.
When the storms of this life rage way out of hand,
Lead me to the Rock, take me higher,
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I am.
[To the Rock]
