Jesus is a Rock in a Weary Land Lyrics
Jesus is a rock in a weary land,
a weary land, a weary land;
My Jesus is a rock in a weary land,
a shelter in the time of storm.
1 No man can do like Jesus,
Not a mumbling word He said;
He went walking down to Lazarus’ grave,
And He raised him from the dead. [Refrain]
2 When Jesus was on earth,
The flesh was very weak;
He girdled himself with a tow’l,
And washed his disciples feet. [Refrain]
3 Yonder comes my Savior,
Him whom I love so well;
He has the palm of victory,
And the keys of death and Hell. [Refrain
Jesus is a Rock in a Weary Land Hymn Story
“Jesus is a Rock in a Weary Land” is an African American spiritual. In other words, it is a folk song and therefore no one knows who composed it originally.
But as is true of all folk songs it might have gone through various changes over the years that it could be very different from the original song.
It is a song that expresses the extraordinary abilities of our Lord Jesus Christ. Someone who could call Lazarus from the grave is someone beyond compare.
He is the creator of the world after all but who humbled himself to be amongst us.
