Representative Text

1 Praise God, I live in Beulah land,
My house will all the storms withstand;
It is not built on sinking sand,
My home is on the Rock.

My home is on the Rock,
The Everlasting Rock;
I do not fear when storms are near,
My home is on the Rock.

2 When come life’s trials thick and fast,
When clouds are o’er my pathway cast,
Secure, I can withstand the blast,
My home is on the Rock. [Refrain]

3 When troubles come that would appall,
When other buildings round me fall,
I rest in Christ, my all in all,
My home is on the Rock. [Refrain]

4 And when my time has come to die,
I’ll have a mansion in the sky;
But still I’ll sing as ages fly,
My home is on the Rock. [Refrain]
