Rock of Ages

This song was written over the summer of 2007. We have been looking at the call for songs for Spring Harvest 2008 and the theme of 'One Hope'

In the lyrics of this song, we take three themes - the hope in Christ through creation, through the cross and for our eternal future
The style is quite hymn-like, but with a good strong beat in a 6/4 time (3 main beats)

Below are the lyrics to 'Rock of ages'

Rock of ages, our creator
Source of life and Lord of all
Word of God, all things sustaining
Steadfast and for ever sure
Christ, our rock and firm foundation
We will trust in you alone
One true hope for every nation
Held secure in heavenís throne

Rock of ages, our salvation
Bought for us upon the cross
Boundless grace so freely given
Victory won at precious cost
Christ, our rock and firm foundation
We will trust in you alone
One true hope for every nation
Held secure in heavenís throne

Rock of ages, God eternal
Sovereign, everlasting Lord
Ruler of our future seasons
Full assurance evermore
Christ, our rock and firm foundation
We will trust in you alone
One true hope for every nation
Held secure in heavenís throne
