Rock of ages cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in thee:

Be of sin the perfect cure,

Save from wrath and make me pure.

Let the water and the blood,

From thy side a healing flood,

Should my tears forever flow,

Should my zeal no languor know

This for sin could not atone;

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.
