Perry Como – 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 flowed
Be of sin, the double cure save from wrath and make me pure

Could my tears forever flow, could my zeal no languor know
These for sin cannot atone, Thou must save and Thou alone
In my hand no price I bring simply to Thy cross I cling

While I draw this fleeting 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
