Hymn/Song Information

Rock of Ages shelter me Let me hide myself in




Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy riven side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure,
Cleanse me from its guilt and power.


Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress,
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly,
Wash me, Saviour, or I die.


Not the labour of my hands
Can fulfil Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears for ever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.


Found by Thee before I sought,
Unto Thee in mercy brought,
I have Thee for righteousness,
From Thy fulness grace for grace:
Thou hast washed me in Thy blood,
Made me live, and live to God.


While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyes shall close in death,
When I soar through tracts unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgement throne;
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.


---Alternative verses---


Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Lo, I hide myself in Thee;
Where the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Are of sin the double cure,
Cleansing from its guilt and power.


Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Grace hath hid me safe in Thee,
Where the water and the blood,
From Thy riven side which flowed,
Are of sin the double cure,
Cleansing from its guilt and power.


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,
Cleanse me from its guilt and power.


Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress,
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Hungry, thirsty, still I flee,
All-sufficient Lord, to Thee.


Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress,
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Vile, I to the fountain fly,
Wash me, Saviour, or I die.


Not the labour of my hands
Could fulfil Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears for ever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.


Not the labour of my hands
Could fulfil the law's demands:
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears for ever flow,
Nought for sin could e'er atone
But Thy blood, and Thine alone.


Should my tears forever 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.


Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone:
Thou must save, and thou alone;
Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to thy cross I cling.


While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyes shall close in death,
When I soar to heights unknown,
And behold Thee on the throne;
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Still I hide myself in Thee.


While I draw this fleeting breath,
If mine eyelids close in death,
When I soar to worlds unknown,
Still of Thee I'll sing alone:
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
All my boast and joy's in Thee.


While I draw this fleeting breath,
When my eyelids close in death,
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See thee on thy judgement throne,
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in thee!


While I draw this fleeting breath,
When my heart-strings break in death;
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgement-throne;
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.
