This is a very moving rendition of the classic hymn “Rock of Ages.” It features one of the greatest female gospel singers Vestal Goodman and the gospel group “The Martins.” What an amazing performance as they really sang it with deep conviction. Be blessed!
“The Gaither Vocal Band is an American southern gospel vocal group, named after its founder and leader Bill Gaither. Founded in the early ’80s, Gaither Vocal Band is one of America’s leading faith-based vocal groups. While Gaither remained the only original member of the ensemble, many well-regarded CCM/gospel singers have passed through the band’s ranks, including Russ Taff, Guy Penrod, Wes Hampton, Michael English, Mark Lowry, and David Phelps. On March 1, 2017, it was announced that the Gaither Vocal Band lineup consisted of Reggie Smith, Wes Hampton, Adam Crabb, Todd Suttles, and Bill Gaither. Although the group started out recording contemporary Christian music in the 1980s, it became known for southern gospel after the popularity of the Gaither Homecoming videos.” (Source: Wikipedia)
Vestal Goodman, The Martins
ROCK OF AGES CLEFT FOR ME
LET ME HIDE MYSELF IN THEE.
LET THE WATER AND THE BLOOD
FROM THY WOUNDED SIDE WHICH FLOWED.
CLOUD MY TEARS FOREVER FLOW
COULD MY ZEAL NO LANGUOR KNOW.
THESE FOR SIN COULD NOT ATONE
THOU MUST SAVE AND THOU ALONE.
WHILE I DRAW MY FLEETING BREATH
WHEN MINE EYES SHALL CLOSE IN DEATH.
WHEN I RISE TO WORLDS UNKNOWN
AND BEHOLD THEE ON THY THRONE.
BE OF SIN THE DOUBLE CURE
SAVE FROM WRATH AND MAKE ME PURE.
IN MY HAND NO PRICE I BRING SIMPLY TO THY CROSS I CLING
ROCK OF AGES CLEFT FOR ME LET ME HIDE MYSELF IN THEE.
