We sometimes sing songs not thinking about the lyrics or the intent/imagery involved in them. Maybe the melody pops up in our head and we sing or hum it anyway.

A case in point is the old familiar hymn "Rock of Ages". I got to wondering what kind of rock was ‘cleft’ and wanted to throw the thought out for discussion to see if anyone knew. In the meantime, I browsed the web (you can find about anything there) and found the following article in Wikipedia (where else).
