Rock of Ages cleft for me, let me hide the shame of what was done to me and the shame of what’s become of me. Hide the tears and the wounds I’ve suffered, and those I have inflicted. Let the water and the blood cover me. Hide my anguish at the sin perpetrated upon me and the sins that I have embraced.
Rock of Ages cleft for me, let me hide.
Let not the labor of my hands deceive me, no restitution is found there. Only hiding in You will save me. I have nothing to give you, only my barren soul. To Your promise I will cling until at last I see You, my heart still singing, Rock of Ages cleft for me, let me hide.
This post is part of the Five Minute Friday link-up. Bloggers from all over respond to the week’s prompt by writing for five minutes. The prompt of Hide for this week’s Five Minute Friday made me sing, cry, and pray.

I love the lyrical quality of your writing 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, Paula. 🙂
As we come and ask Him to let us hide in Him, He so willingly lets us hide in Him, enveloping us in the shadow of His wings. No better place to be! Glad to be here from #FMF 🙂
No better place to be, that is certain! Thanks for stopping by, Joanne.
Thanks for reminding me of that wonderful old hymn.
I love the lyrics and the tune.
Glad to find your website and ministry~
Thanks for stopping by, Melanie. 🙂
Oh, the truth that springs forth from your pain, your words, His grace, His power.
You have blessed us, you have honored Him in the penning of these words. May you experience His gracious tender care, even as we speak, friend …
Thank you, Linda.
Love it. I’ve never really paid much attention to the words of Rock of Ages since it has been years since I’ve heard it. Thank you! I love them. Great post. I am your neighbor at Fellowship Friday linkup.
Hi Gina! Glad you stopped by.
Thank you. I prayed with you.
Be blessed, Kathy.
You my dear have been blessed with a heavenly touch in your writing. It caused me to see through the thin places and want to live a more faithful life for our Savior. Only wish I live close to you so you could give me pointers. I am such a black and white writer, not much details, get to the point, exhort, exhort, exhort is always my goal for that is how God speaks to me. Glad I stop by, will visit again I am sure.
Betty, so glad you were touched. I am happy to know you. God uses all kinds of writing, all we need to worry about is being obedient, yes?
Glad you stopped by!
