Rock of ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in Thee;

Let the water and the blood

From Thy side, a healing flood,

Be of sin the double cure,

Save from wrath, and make me pure.

Should my tears for ever flow,

Should my zeal no languor know,

All for sin could not 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 mine eyelids 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.

Amen.
