I Run to the Rock (Suite)

Jenny Burton  •  Song

$4.95

In music, a suite (pronounced “sweet”) is a collection of short musical pieces which can be played one after another. The pieces are usually dance movements. The French word “suite” means “a sequence” of things, i.e. one thing following another.

“I Run To The Rock is an African/Gospel based exploration of a salvation seeker. I've always been impressed with the story of David and Goliath in the Bible where David runs to meet the foe. That verse has always given me chills. Here in Steve's song the concept of running to God is also chill-inducing. Also Jenny Burton plays a major part in inspiring the song with her ever present commitment to the lyric and her magical voice.” ~Peter Link

I Run to the Rock
Lyrics by Steve Okwor
Music by Steve Okwor, Peter Link, and Jenny Burton

Everyday I listen to the news
It’s all tales of blues
It makes me wonder where to hide
To be safe on every side

When I’m rocked by fear
I seek my Savior near
As I run to the rock higher than I
To the Almighty Adonai
When I’m rocked by fear
I find my peace through prayer
When I cling to the rock higher than I
To the Almighty on High
To the Almighty Adonai

Even though my weaknesses are great
I will trust Him and wait
And then follow where He leads
And He will surely meet all my needs

When I’m rocked by fear
I know divine Love’s near
When I run to the rock higher than I
To the Almighty Adonai
When I’m rocked by fear
I find my peace through prayer
When I cling to the rock higher than I
To the Almighty on high
To the Almighty Adonai

Whether it’s in the day
Or it’s deep in the night
Even when I’m far away
I’m dwelling in His light
For the presence of God is everywhere
And all my affairs are in His care

As a mother comforted her child
With a pure love undefiled
So I’m loved there beneath His wings
And my soul so joyfully sings

When I’m rocked by fear
I know divine Love’s near
When I run to the rock higher than I
To the Almighty Adonai
When I’m rocked by fear
I know my Savior’s near
When I cling to the rock higher than I
To the Almighty on High
To the Almighty Adonai
