“While I draw this fleeting breath, When my eyes shall close in death,

When I rise to worlds unknown, See Thee on Thy judgment throne,

Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee. Amen”

This final verse of ‘Rock of Ages’ may seem a little morbid and distasteful to some, but I think the author had a good balance in his belief system. The gospel isn’t just about what we can get from God down here in this life, but its about dealing with the sin that separates us all from God. And, when we finally breathe our last, its about our eternal destiny in either heaven or hell. This author pleads, when that Day comes, “Let me hide myself in You!”
