Rock of Ages, draw me nigh
To a place that is higher than I.
Where peace and safety surely dwell
Far from the torment of an endless hell.
I stand in awe, Lord, of Thee,
Knowing that this is where I can be.
To hide in cover of gracious wing,
Makes my heart to laugh and sing.
My lips are full of wonderful praise.
My heart and hands I humbly raise
To Jesus, God’s Ageless Rock.
I come, Lord, while others mock.
O Rock of Ages, draw me nigh
To a place that is higher than I
That I may dwell in perfect peace.
O Lord, what sweet release!
