Oh, Rock Of Ages
Hide Thou me..
There is no other refuse can save the thief
To this old world I wonder ohh, so far, far from thee
Then I cry to the Rock Of Ages
Hide Thou me.. hide Thou me

Elvis accompaning himself on piano. There is a second voice. Elvis really throws himself into the song.
Beautiful gospel song sung and played on the piano as only The King can. I believe the second voice is Charlie Hodge. Another great talent.
The only Elvis recording of this song that I care about is the 5:01 version from the "Today, Tomorrow and Forever" RCA/BMG 4-CD Box Set from 2002. It's by far the best Elvis recording of this beautiful gospel song and it does include additional lyrics that the much shorter Elvis recording of this song doesn't have. The 5:01 Elvis home recording of this song was such a truly great find and it's such a masterpiece of a home recording for sure. 5 Stars.
