Rock of Ages


  1. Apata ayeraye
    Apata ayeraye
    Se ibi isadi mi;
    Je ki omi oun eje,
    T’o n san lati iha Re,
    Se iwosan f’ese mi,
    K’o si so mi di mimo.
  2. K’ Ise ise owo mi,
    Lo le mu ofin Re se;
    B’ itara mi ko l’are,
    T’ omije mi n san titi;
    Won ko to fun etutu,
    ‘Wo nikan l’o le gbala.
  3. Ko s’ohun ti mo mu wa,
    Mo ro mo agbelebu;
    Mo wa, k’o d’aso bo mi,
    Mo n wo o fun iranwo;
    Mo wa sib’ orisun ni,
    We mi, Olugbala mi.
  4. ‘Gbati emi mi ba n lo,
    T’iku ba p’oju mi de,
    Ti mba n lo s’aye aimo,
    Ti n ri o n’ite ‘dajo;
    Apata ayeraye,
    Se ibi isadi mi.

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,
Save me from its guilt and power.


Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All could never sin erase,
Thou must save, and save by grace.


Nothing in my hands I bring,
Simply to Thy 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 mine 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
