Hymnary Friends,

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.

Trusting in the Rock of Ages

Rock of ages, still the same

Author: Emma Frances Barrows
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

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.
