“I Go to the Rock:” A Song of Belief in Jesus’ Strength

The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

(Psalm 18:2)

It always feels exciting to mention the above Biblical passage especially if you’re speaking from the heart. The line tells nothing but the truth – Jesus is our everything. In Him, nothing is impossible. Hence, we can count on Him anytime.

There’s a lovely song that describes Jesus being our solid rock. It’s called “I Go to the Rock.” The Southern Gospel legend Dottie Rambo wrote it. Despite being a gospel song, Rambo added a jazzy feeling into it on her recording.

“I Go to the Rock”

The song is comprised of two stanzas and a chorus being repeatedly sung toward the end. The two verses contain lines that ask questions. These were subsequently answered with conviction by the closing line of each verse,

“I go to the Rock.”

Also, this is supplemented by the rousing and resounding chorus.

I go to the Rock of my Salvation
I go to the Stone that the builders rejected
I run to the mountain and the mountain stands by me
When the earth all around me is sinking sand
On Christ, the solid rock I stand
When I need a shelter, When I need a friend
I go to the Rock

“I Go to the Rock” emphasizes one’s belief in the Lord’s strengths and abilities. That is why when troubles of this world become too overwhelming, there’s a solid rock we can all rely on. Without hesitation, He’ll meet our every need and provide even more. That’s how much He loves us.
