Folk- und Gospellieder
A Child is born in Bethlehem
A deeper love
A little child may know
All around my hat
All day all night
All my trials
Almighty most holy god
Amazing grace
Ameno
At the cross
Banks of the Ohio
Blowing In The Wind
Old Mc Donald had a farm
Rock of Ages
There is a house in New Orleans
When the Battle's Over


Rock of Ages

Augustus Montague Toplady, 1775

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure;
Save from wrath and make me pure.

Not the labor 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 the 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,
[originally When my eye-strings break 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.
