Lyrics

  1. 1. 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.
  2. 2. Not the labors of my hands
    Can fill all thy law's demands;
    Could my zeal no respite know,
    Could my tears forever flow,
    All for sin could not atone;
    Thou must save, and thou alone.
  3. 3. While I draw this fleeting breath,
    When mine 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.
  4. Text: Augustus M. Toplady, 1740-1778
    Music: Thomas Hastings, 1784-1872
