Invitation Hymn

Oh weary sinner lift your head
And gaze on Calvary
For Jesus bears your sins away
His death has set you free
No longer work and strive in vain
Your best will never do
But trust that Jesus righteousness
Has been applied to you
The peace and rest you’ve so long craved
Is found in Jesus Christ
His blood can heal your deepest wounds
His death has bought your life.
No guilt or wrath is left to fear
Death is now your slave
For when you meet he’ll bring you home
To see your Savior’s face
Rejoice oh sinner shout and sing
Christ set his love on you
Lay doubts and fears and guilt aside
He’s making all things new
Be sure and know these promises
God never will forsake
Christ died to bear the wrath of God
And rose to kill the grave

Rock of Ages- Augustus Toplady, 1776

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Nothing in my hand I bring,
    Simply to Thy 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.
  4. While I draw this fleeting breath,
    When my eyes shall close in death,
    When I rise to worlds unknown,
    And behold Thee on Thy throne,
    Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
    Let me hide myself in Thee.
