Words:

 

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.
 

NOTHING IN MY HAND
I BRING,

SIMPLY TO THY CROSS
I CLING:

COULD MY TEARS FOR
EVER FLOW,

COULD MY ZEAL NO LANGUOR
KNOW,

ALL FOR SIN COULD NOT
ATONE,

THOU MUST SAVE, AND
THOU ALONE.
 

WHILE I DRAW THIS FLEETING
BREATH,

WHEN MINE EYELIDS CLOSE
IN DEATH,

WHEN I RISE TO WORLDS
UNKNOWN,

SEE THEE ON THY JUDGMENT
THRONE,

ROCK OF AGES CLEFT
FOR ME,

LET ME HIDE MYSLEF
IN THEE.
