ROCK OF AGES

A.M. Toplady, T. Hastings

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
Not the labours of my hands can fulfil Thy law’s commands
Could my zeal no respite know, could my tears forever flow
All for sin could not atone, Thou must save, and Thou alone

Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to the cross I cling
Naked, come to Thee for dress, helpless, look to Thee for grace
Foul, I to the fountain fly, wash me, Saviour, or I die

While I draw this fleeting breath, when mine eyes shall close in death
When I soar to worlds unknown, see thee on thy judgment throne
Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in thee
