Verse 1Rock of ages cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee Let the water and the blood from Thy wounded side which flowed Be for sin the double cure, save from wrath and make me pure!
Verse 2 Not the labors of my hands can fulfill thy laws demands Could my zeal no respite know; could my tears forever flow All for sin could not atone; Thou must save and Thou alone
Chorus A May I hide myself in Thee Would you cover my head in Your mercies Can Your grace come capture me And make Your righteousness my identity
Verse 3 Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to the cross I cling Naked, come to Thee for dress; helpless, look to Thee for grace Foul, I to the fountain fly, wash me Savior, or I die
Verse 4 While I draw this fleeting breath, when my eyes shall close in death When I soar to worlds unknown; see Thee on Thy judgement throne Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee
Chorus B Lord I hide myself in Thee You have covered my head in Your mercies Yes Your grace has captured me You've made Your righteousness my identity
