Representative Text

1 In Thy cleft, O Rock of Ages,
Hide Thou me;
When the fitful tempest rages,
Hide Thou me;
Where no mortal arm can sever
From my heart Thy love forever,
Hide me, O Thou Rock of Ages,
Safe in Thee.

2 From the snare of sinful pleasure
Hide Thou me;
Thou, my soul’s eternal treasure,
Hide Thou me;
When the world its power is wielding,
And my heart is almost yielding,
Hide me, O Thou Rock of Ages,
Safe in Thee.

3 In the lonely night of sorrow,
Hide Thou me;
Till in glory dawns the morrow,
Hide Thou me;
In the shadows that enfold me,
Let thy gentle hands uphold me,
Hide me, O Thou Rock of Ages,
Safe in Thee.
