1 Are you building your foundation
Strong and sure,
Strong and sure,
On the Rock that through all ages
Shall endure,
Shall endure?
For the floods will soon be coming
Here and there,
Here and there,
Storm and tempest wildly beating
Ev’rywhere,
Ev’rywhere.

Refrain:
Jesus Christ is the Sure Foundation;
Built on him you never can fail;
Jesus Christ is the Sure Foundation,
Mighty, Everlasting Rock for all.

2 Build not thou thy precious dwelling
On the sand,
On the sand,
For when sweeps the raging torrent
Thro’ the land,
Thro’ the land,
Then shall come thy swift destruction,
And thy fall,
And thy fall;
And no stone be left in honor
On thy wall,
On thy wall. [Refrain]

3 What a blessed, sure foundation,
Christ our Lord!
Christ our Lord!
May we build our full salvation
On his word!
On his word!
Then in glorious strength and beauty
Shall it last,
Shall it last,
All the waves of time enduring,
Strong and fast,
Strong and fast. [Refrain]
