‘Rock of Ages’

I always think of this as the 19th century hymn; but actually it was written in 1763 by Augustus Toplady: Rock of Ages, performed here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir.

If you’re new here, and you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just let us know and we’ll do the rest.


‘Rock of Ages’ (It’s the Gospel)

This is one of the world’s best known and best loved hymns–Rock of Ages, by Augustus Toplady, published in 1775, the year of Lexington and Concord. Here we have it sung by the Antrim Mennonite Choir.

We’ve heard this hymn so often that it’s easy to take it for granted. But see the lyrics: this is indeed the Gospel message. This is the good news we all need to hear.
