Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Rock of Ages, still the same,
Everlasting, bless his name!
Thou on earth o'er sinners wept,
Faithful watch hast ever kept;
To thy sheltering arms I flee,
Sympathy I find in thee.
2 Rock of Ages, gladly come,
Wanderers, to the Father's home;
Thus the weary, fainting child,
Traveling o'er the desert wild,
'Neath thy grateful shadows flee,
Rest and strength receive from thee.
3 Rock of Ages, from thy side,
All who in the Rock abide
May receive a full supply;
Can with perfect faith draw nigh;
Thirsting souls, the waters see,
Sweet, refreshing, come from thee.
4 Rock of Ages, firm, secure,
Nothing else can thus endure
Storm and tempest; ages gone,
Still unmoved, the shock that borne;
Thou, my righteousness I see,
All my hopes are built on thee.
5 Rock of Ages, thou alone,
Through eternal years art known;
While the endless cycles roll,
Rock and refuge of my soul,
Rest and joy awaiteth me,
Heaven and home are found in thee.Source: Bible Study Songs: for junior societies, junior and primary Sunday schools #150c
