Rock Of Ages


Augustus MonTague Toplady - 1775

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.

Chorus
Not the labors of my hands
can fulfill 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.

2.
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, Savior, or I die.

3.
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.
