603R Rock of Ages / Roca de la eternidad


1. Rock of A-ges, cleft for me,
let me hide, a shel-ter be;
O the wa-ters midst the flood,
from the wound-ed sky did flow;
May we find a last-ing cure;
Save from wrath and make all pure.

2. Noth-ing in my hand I bring,
simp-ly to your love I cling;
Nak-ed, come to you for dress;
Help-less, look to you for grace;
Foul, I to your foun-tain fly;
Wash me, Pure Love, now my cry.

3. While I draw this fleet-ing breath,
when my eye-strings close in death,
when I soar to worlds un-known,
see you on the mer-cy throne!
Rock of A-ges, cleft for me,
Let me hide; a shel-ter be

a. Ro-ca de la~e-ter-ni-dad,
fuis-te~a-bier-ta tú por mí.
Sé mi~es-con-de-de-ro fiel,
só-lo~en-cuen-tro paz en ti;
ri-co, lim-pio ma-nan-tial,
en el cual la-va-do fui.

b. Aun-que se-a siem-pre fiel,
aun-que lu-che sin ce-sar,
só-lo~en ti te-nien-do fe,
sal-va-ción he de go-zar;
Sé mi~es-con-de-de-ro fiel,
ro-ca de la~e-ter-ni-dad.
