Rock Of Ages

Mahalia Jackson

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure;
Save from wrath and make me pure.

Hm-hm-hm... (a full stanza)

While I draw this fleeting breath,
When I close my eyes in death,
When I've rised to worlds unknown,
And the holding of thy throne
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.
