Hide Thou Me Lyrics

1 In Thy cleft, O Rock of Ages,
Hide Thou me;
When the fitful tempest rages,
Hide Thou me;
Where no mortal arm can sever
From my heart Thy love forever,
Hide me, O Thou Rock of Ages,
Safe in Thee.

2 From the snare of sinful pleasure,
Hide Thou me;
Thou my soul’s eternal treasure,
Hide Thou me;
When the world its power is wielding,
And my heart is almost yielding,
Hide me, O Thou Rock of Ages,
Safe in Thee.

3 In the lonely night of sorrow,
Hide Thou me;
Till in glory dawns the morrow,
Hide Thou me;
In the sight of Jordan’s billow,
Let thy bosom be my pillow;
Hide me, O Thou Rock of Ages,
Safe in Thee.

Hide Thou Me Hymn Story

“Hide Thou Me” or “In Thy Cleft, O Rock of Ages” is a hymn that was written by the famous blind hymnwriter Fanny Crosby. This hymn is based on Psalm 32:7

“You are a hiding place for me;
you preserve me from trouble;
you surround me with glad cries of deliverance”

The bible is full of verses that inform us that God is our protector and our hiding place. It uses various means to express this like rock of ages or cleft rock.

All these words are trying to show us that he is a dependable protector just like a rock is dependable. You can hide in a cleft rock and not worry about the elements.

He wants us to know that we can run to him in our times of trouble, and he will protect us.
