Rock of ages, cleft for me

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.

2) Not the labour of my hands,
can fulfil thy law's demands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears for ever flow,
all for sin could not atone:
Thou must save, and thou alone.

Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to thy cross I cling;
naked, come to thee for dress;
helpless, look to thee for grace;
foul, I to the fountain fly:
Wash me, Saviour, or I die.

While I draw this fleeting breath,
when my eyes shall close in death,
when I rise to worlds unknown,
and behold thee on thy throne,
rock of ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee.

Ich will dir danken! 113
