"R ock of Age», cleft for ine,”
Thoughtlessly the maiden »ung:
Fell the words unconsciously,
From her girlish, gleeful tongue;
Sang as little children sing:
Sang as sing the birds in June:
Fell the words like light leaves down
On the current of the tune—
“ Rock of Ages, cleft forme,
Let me hide myself in Thee.’ ’

“ Let me hide myself in Thee, ” —
Felt her soul no need to hide:
Sweet the song as *ong could 1>e —
And she had no thought beside;
All the words unheedingly
Fell from lips untouched by care,
Dreaming not they each might bo
On sonic other lips a prayer—
“ Rock of Ages, cleft for mo
Let me hide myself in Thee."
“ R>ok of Age», cleft for m e," —
Lips grown aged sung the hymn
Trustingly and tenderly;
' oiee grown weak, and eves grown dim,
“ L t nu- hide myself in T hee."
Trembling tho’ the voice and low,
Ran the sweet strain peacefully.
Like a river iu its flow,
Sung as only they can sing
Who life's thoruv paths have passed;
Suug as only they can sing,
Who behold the promised rest -
“ R >ck of Age*, cleft for me.
Let me hide myself in T hee."
