Religious Music – Rock Of Ages lyrics

Verse #1
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide thyself 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.

Verse #2
Not the labors of my hands,
Can fulfill Thy law's demands;
These for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, Thou alone:
In my hand no price I bring,
Simply to the cross I cling.

Verse #3
While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine 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 thyself in Thee.
