The second hymn from our new "Quarantine Quire Camp" series is here! Christ Church is partnering with St. John's, Norwood Parish to offer two weekly webinars focusing on vocal technique, music theory, aural skills and sight-singing. We have spliced together everyone's contributions and are proud to present "Rock of Ages" to you.
The words are below - sing along, and enjoy! Rock of ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee;
let the water and the blood
from thy wounded side that flowed,
be of sin the double cure,
cleanse me from its guilt and power.
Should my tears for ever flow,
should my zeal no languor know,
all for sin could not atone:
thou must save, and thou alone;
in my hand no price I bring,
simply to thy cross I cling.
While I draw this fleeting breath,
when mine eyelids 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.
