Verse 1:
G
  Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
              Cmaj7
let me hide myself in Thee; 
G
  let the water and the blood, 
                  Cmaj7
from thy wounded side which flowed,
Em7                C
   be of sin the double cure;
Em7                      Am7
   save from wrath and make me pure. 
Verse 2 (chords as V.1.) :
Not the labours of my hands 
can fulfil Thy law's commands; 
could my zeal no respite know, 
could my tears forever flow?
All for sin could not atone; 
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

Rock of A  - ges, Rock of Ages,
                      Em
the cross will ever speak
           D
mercy over me.
        C/G  G            C/G
Rock of A  - ges, Rock of Ages,
                 Em
so powerful to save.

Never ending grace
                Am
will guide me home.

[2.]   : N.C.   N.C.         :   [to V.4]
[3.]
                 Em
so powerful to save.
                D
Never ending grace
                Am
will guide me home.
Verse 3 (chords as V.1.) :
Nothing in my hand I bring, 
simply to the 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. 
Verse 4 (chords as V.1.) :
While I draw this fleeting breath, 
when my eyes shall close in death, 
when I soar to worlds unknown, 
see Thee on thy judgment throne, 
Rock of Ages, cleft for me, 
let me hide myself in Thee.

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 labors of my hands
Can fulfill thy law's commands
Could my zeal no respite know
Could my tears forever flow
All for sin could not atone
Thou must save, and thou alone

Rock of Ages, Rock of Ages
The cross will ever speak
Mercy over me
Rock of Ages, Rock of Ages
So powerful to save
Never ending grace
Will guide me home

Nothing in my hand I bring
Simply to the 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 soar to worlds unknown
See thee on thy judgment throne
Rock of Ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in thee
