Hello,
I'm looking for the lyrics to a song and I think the chorus goes:
I'm standing on the rock of ages, i'm standing on the rock of ages for my every need. When I'm suffering when I am sad, I stand on the rock it makes me glad. I'm standing on the rock of ages for my every need. I can't find this anywhere.
Thanks,
Brenda

When the billows are raging all around my soul,
When the storms of confusion around me roll,
There's a place that I go to and sweet comfort I receive;
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need.

I go to the Rock of Ages,
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need!
When I'm discouraged, when I am sad,
I go the the Rock, He makes me glad!
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need.

He's the Rock that I hide in, my shelter in the night.
He's the Rock that I stand on for the right.
In this Rock there is honey where my hungry soul can feed:
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need.

I go to the Rock of Ages,
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need!
When I'm discouraged, when I am sad,
I go the the Rock, He makes me glad!
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need.

I go to the Rock of Ages,
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need!
When I'm discouraged, when I am sad,
I go the the Rock, He makes me glad!
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need.

I go to the Rock of Ages,
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need!
When I'm discouraged, when I am sad,
I go the the Rock, He makes me glad!
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need.

I have not been able to find out who composed it though.

The Kingdom Heirs sang this song very well in 1995.
