Representative Text

1 Let me cling to Thee, O Rock of Ages,
While I sail o’er life’s rough sea,
While the shadows thickly round me gather,
Let me ever cling to Thee.

2 Let me ever cling to Thee, O Rock of Ages,
Cling to Thee, cling to Thee,
While the storm of life around is raging,
Let me ever, ever cling to Thee.

3 Let me cling to Thee, O Rock of Ages,
When my sins are pressing me,
When the tempest’s fiery darts are flowing,
Let me ever cling to Thee.

4 Let me cling to Thee, O Rock of Ages,
When the path I fail to see,
When the cup of sorrow is o’erflowing,
Let me ever cling to Thee.

5 Let me cling to Thee, O Rock of Ages,
When I near eternity,
When I pass that dark and lonely valley,
Let me ever cling to Thee.
