Rock of Ages

I have not forsaken thee, nor am I far away. Nay, my child, but I am as a Great Rock and ye have been, as it were, looking at the shadow. For I have purposed to be a shelter from sun and storm. But ye have focused your attention on the darkness of the shadow rather than casting yourself upon me, the Rock. I am not a rock of stone–but I am a rock of refuge–a powerful protection, a mighty help, a never failing savior. My love is a river with constant supply. Plenteous grace with me is found: Grace to pardon all thy sin!

Dialogues With God, Frances J. Roberts


Rock of ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in Thee;

Let the water and the blood,

From Thy riven side which flowed,

Be of sin the double cure,

Cleanse from guilt and make me pure.
