​Rock Of Ages

This song is by Sister Rosetta Tharpe and appears on the album Blessed Assurance (1951).

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
Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law's demands

Could my zeal no respite know
Could my tears forever 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, Savior, 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
