Full Text

1. Are you building your house on the rock or the sand,
Are you living for time or the ages to be?
Do you know that your structure, though shaken, will stand,
Unharmed by the tempests which sweep o’er the sea?

Refrain
Let rains descend and tempests sweep;
Let floods arise and billows leap;
My house will stand ’neath every shock,
For I have built upon the Rock.

2. O the Lord is the Rock; our Foundation is tried,
And is changeless today as in centuries flown,
Though by men once rejected, He still doth abide,
He’s the blest Rock of Ages, the great Living Stone. [Refrain]

3. Though the billows may beat and the hurricane blow,
I am fearless and calm in the face of the gale;
For the Word of Jehovah is sure, and I know,
Having built on my Savior, they cannot prevail. [Refrain]
