1 O Builders! haste to the rock alone;
‘Tis Jesus Christ the corner stone;
We sing his praise as we build today,
For “other foundations can no one lay.”

Refrain:
O Builders! haste to the Rock away,
For “other foundations can no one lay,”
By snares of Satan no more enticed,
We now build alone on the Rock of Christ.

2 We builded long on the sand of sin,
Our wrecks went out,—the tide came in;
By snares of Satan no more enticed,
We now build alone on the Rock of Christ. [Refrain]

3 The rains descend and the tempests rave,
But trusting him whose power can save,
We sing his praise and will sing for aye,
For “other foundations can no one lay.” [Refrain]
