1 Rock of Ages, wilt thou be,
Cleft for guilty ones like me?
May I peace and comfort find?
I am poor and weak and blind.
Jesus, Lord, I look to thee;
Thou alone canst shelter me;
At thy cross I humbly fall;
O be thou my all in all.
2 Rock of Ages, dear to me,
Let me shelter safe in thee;
Open thou and take me in,
Cleanse me now from ev’ry sin. [Refrain]
3 While the waves around me roll,
Passing o’er the treach’rous shoal,
Chart and compass be to me,
Rock of Ages, pilot me. [Refrain]
4 Soon I’ll close my eyes in death;
While I draw this fleeting breath,
Lord, assure me there shall be
Shelter in this Rock for me. [Refrain]
5 Lord, by faith I now can see
Cleansing blood that flows for me;
Joy and peace within I hold,
Sheltered in thy blissful fold. [Refrain]Source: Songs of Grace and Glory: A New and Inspiring Selection of Sacred Songs for Evangelical Use and General Worship #35
