That Rock was Christ.
1 Cor. 10:4.

Israel the desert trod,

Sustained by power divine,

While wondrous mercy marked the road

With many a mystic sign.

2 When Moses gave the stroke,

From Horeb’s flinty side

Issued a river, and the rock

The Hebrew’s thirst supplied.

3 But O! what nobler themes

Does gospel grace afford!

From Calvary spring superior streams—

There hung the smitten Lord!

4 Of every hope bereft,

Sinners to Jesus go;

Behold the Rock of Ages cleft,

And living currents flow.

5 Here may our spirits bathe,

Here may our joys abound!

Till (passed the wilderness and death)

We tread celestial ground.
