Prayer

The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
Psalms 145:18

Weekly Prayer Life

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 me from its guilt and power.

 

Not the labors of my hands
Can fulfill thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know.
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone:
Thou must save, and thou alone.

 

Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to they cross I cling;
Make, 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 my eyelids close in death,
When I soar through tracts unknown,
See thee on thy judgment throne;
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in thee.
Amen.

 

From Augustus Toplady (1740 – 1778)
