Doris Wells was one of three sisters of my late father, Sherwood D. Spivey. While growing up, my family lived in New Jersey, 400 miles from "Aunt" Doris and her family, but we always looked forward to our trips to Virginia. Doris was a terrific person who always welcomed us warmly into her home. We had many fun times at the Wells' home with Doris, Ollie and their three boys: Donnie, Dennis and Douglas. We also loved their motel and, of course, their close access to Buckroe Beach. I'll never forget Doris's wonderful attitude toward life and her distinctive laugh. We will all miss her, but will always cherish those memories.

Rock of Ages

Words by Augustus Montague Toplady, 1763 (first published in The Gospel Magazine, 1775)
(04 Nov 1740 - 11 Aug 1778)

Music by Thomas Hastings
(15 Oct 1784 - 15 May 1872)


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,
Save me from its guilt and pow'r.

Not the labors of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law's demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked come, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly,
Wash me, Savior, or I die!

While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyes shall close in death,
When I soar to Thee for dress;
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.
