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 Could my tears forever flow,
Could my zeal no languor know,
These for sin could not atone--
Thou must save, and Thou alne:
In my hand no price I bring,
Simply to Ty cross I cling.
3 While I draw this final 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. Amen.
