Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee, Let the water and the blood, From thy riven side which flowed, Be of sin the double cure, Cleanse me from its guilt and power.

Augustus Montague Toplady was an Anglican cleric and hymn writer. He was a major Calvinist opponent of John Wesley. He is best remembered as the author of the hymn "Rock of Ages". Three of his other hymns "A Debtor to Mercy Alone", "Deathless Principle, Arise" and "Object of My First Desire" are still occasionally sung today, though all three are far less popular than "Rock of Ages".
