Excerpt from Songs of Sunshine and Shadow Rock of Ages. Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Thoughtlessly the maiden sung;Fell the words unconsciouslyFrom her girlish, gleeful tongue.Sung as little children sing, Sung as sing the birds in June;Fell the words like bright leaves downOn the current of the tune: Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in thee!
