Representative Text

1 Are you building on the Rock eternal?
Are you building on the sinking sand?
Are you going to that home supernal,
In that brighter, far-off, happy land?

Refrain:
Are you building on the Rock?
Are you building on the Rock?
Are you building on the Rock,
Or on the sinking sand?

2 Are you building on a strong foundation?
Can you stand the stormy sea of life?
’Mid the surging billows’ wild commotion,
Do you conquer in the raging strife? [Refrain]

3 Are you building on a strong foundation,
With an anchor that will keep the soul?
Living in His love and truth unshaken,
Grounded firm and deep though billows roll? [Refrain]

4 Are you building on a strong foundation?
Can you stand the awful judgment shock?
Are you grounded in His great salvation,
Fastened like an anchor to the Rock? [Refrain]
