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.
