The Rock That Is Higher Than I 340

Tune: Arranged by Benjamin Franklin White, 1869
Alto: Miss Minnie Floyd, 1902
Lyrics: Dobellís New Selection, 1806
Meter: 11s (11,11,11,11)
Convinced as a sinner to Jesus I come,
Informed by the gospel for such there is room;
O'erwhelmed with sorrows for sin I will cry,
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

Chorus:

Higher than I, higher than I,
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

'Tis there with the chosen of Jesus I long,
To swell and eternally join in the song,
And praising and blessing with angels on high,
Its Jesus, the Rock, that is higher than I.

(Chorus)
