1 Rock  of  A-ges,    cleft  for me,     Let    me hide my-self in     Thee
2 Not   the la-bors   of     my  hands   Can ful  -fill Thy law's de  -mands;
3 Noth -ing in my     hand   I   bring,  Sim-ply   to Thy cross I      cling
4 While I   draw this fleet -ing breath, When my   eyes shall close in death,

1 let   the  wa-ter and the    blood, From  Thy   riv-en side which  flowed,
2 Could my   zeal no res      -pite   know, Could my tears for-ev-er flow,
3 Na   -ked, come to Thee for  dress; Help -less, look to Thee for   rest;
4 When  I    soar to worlds un-known, See   Thee  on Thy judg-ment   throne,

1 Be    of  sin the   dou   -ble  cure, Save from wrath and make me pure.
2 These for sin could not    a-   tone; Thou must save, and Thou a -lone.
3 Foul, I   to the    foun  -tain fly,  Wash me,  Sav-ior, or I     die!
4 Rock  of  A-ages,   cleft  for  me,   Let me    hide my-self in   Thee.
