Johnny Cash – Rock Of Ages lyrics

Rock of ages cleft for me let me hide myself in Thee

Let the water and the blood from Thy wounded side which fload

Thee of sin the double cure save from raft and make me pure

[ strings ]

Let me hime myself in Thee

[ strings ]

In my hand no prize I bring simply to Thy cross I cling

[ strings ]

While I draw this pleading breath when my eyes shall close in death

Lord when I rise to world unknown and behold the on Thy throne

Rock of ages cleft for me let me hime myself in Thee

Let me hime myself in Thee
