Inspiring Lyrics--"Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me"
Puppyfoot on 09/05/2008
|"Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me" has lyrics written by a young Christian minister, Augustus Toplady. He was traveling through particularly rough terrain in England when a heavy rainstorm drove him to seek shelter quickly. He found a rocky overhang that protected him from rain and wind. There, as he waited out the storm, he conceived the idea for the lyrics to the hymn. The words were written in 1763. The tune in the version with which I am most familiar was written by Thomas Hastings. This Kerblunk is based on three of the verses from that hymn.|
AN IMPORTANT NOTE: I realize that many hymns have different versions of lyrics because they have been revised over the years. If you feel that any of the "wrong" answers on this quiz are actually right and can send me information verifying this, I will gladly consider changing the answers. Thanks for your help.
