Rock of Ages

 Rock of ages


Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me

Let me hide myself in Thee

Let the water and the blood

From Thy wounded side which flowed

Be of sin the double cure

Save from wrath and make me pure.


Could my tears forever flow

Could me zeal no languor know

These for sin could not atone

Thou must save, and Thou alone

In my hand no price I bring

Simply to Thy cross I cling.

While I draw this fleeting breath


When my eyes shall close in death

When I rise to worlds unknown

And behold Thee on Thy throne

Rock of Ages, cleft for me

Let me hide myself in Thee.
