5 Thou spread'st a table in my sight,
Thy unction grace bestoweth ; And oh, what transport of delight
From Thy pure chalice floweth !
6 And so through all the length of days,
Thy goodness faileth never :
Within Thy house for ever!

2 Jesus, I die to Thee,
Whenever death shall come; To die in Thee is life to me,
In my eternal home. 3 Whether to live or die,
I know not which is best
To live in Thee is bliss to me,
To die is endless rest.
I ask but to be Thine;
Makes heaven for ever mine.

1. Rock of A - ges, cleft for me, Let me hide my - self in Thee; 2. Not the la · bors of my hands Can ful - fill Thy law's de- mands;

Be of sin the dou-ble cure, Cleanse me from its guilt and power.
