Rock of ages cleft for me
Let me hide myself in thee.
Let the water and the blood
From thy wounded side which flowed.
Cloud my tears forever flow
Could my zeal no languor know.
These for sin could not atone
Thou must save and thou alone.
While I draw my fleeting breath
When mine eyes shall close in death.
When I rise to worlds unknown
And behold thee on thy throne.
Be of sin the double cure
Save from wrath and make me pure.
In my hand no price I bring simply to thy cross I cling
Rock of ages cleft for me let me hide myself in thee.
