531 ~ We'll Build on the Rock


We'll build on the Rock, the living Rock, On Jesus, the Rock of Ages; So shall we abide the fearful shock, When loud the tempest rages.


We'll build on the Rock, We'll build on the Rock; We'll build on the Rock, on the solid Rock, On Christ, the mighty Rock.


Some build on the sinking sands of life, On visions of earthly treasure; Some build on the waves of sin and strife, Of fame, and worldly pleasure.


O build on the Rock forever sure, The firm and the true foundation; Its hope is the hope which shall endure, The hope of our salvation.
