ENGLISH Refrain:
Here on Jesus Christ I will stand.
He’s the solid rock of my life.
He’s the solid rock of my life.
He’s the solid rock of my life.

SWAHILI Refrain:
Kwake Yesu nasimama,
ndiye mwamba ni salama.
Ndiye mwamba ni salama,
ndiye mwamba ni salama.

1 There’s no other place I can hide
till the storm that rages subsides.
My voice cries to God from the flood,
and I’m saved because of his blood. [Refrain]

2 It is not the work of my hands
that has washed away all my sins.
I’m redeemed, and all of my days,
Jesus Christ will be my heart’s praise. [Refrain]

3 When my days on this earth are done,
and I stand at God’s holy throne,
my heart will not have any fear;
in Christ’s righteousness I am here. [Refrain]
