1 Built on the Rock, not on the sand,
O God, Thy holy Church shall stand,
Redeemed from sin by Jesus’ blood,
Pardoned and cleansed and filled with God.

Yes, filled with God,

Pardoned and cleansed, and filled with God;
Yes, filled with God,

Pardoned and cleansed, and filled with God.

2 What grace that I should have a part
In this blest band, that my poor heart
Should be by heav’nly pow’r inclined
Thy love to seek, Thy peace to find. [Chorus]

3 A lively stone kept by Thy grace,
Thy mercy giveth me a place;
I, too, am of Thy body, Lord,
Cleansed by Thy blood, kept by Thy word. [Chorus]

4 Yes, built upon the solid rock,
Thy Church shall stand the tempest shock;
And, when the clouds have rolled away,
Stand mistress of eternal day. [Chorus]
