Verse 2:
The Bible teaches us our lessons
In parables, they're parables,
Not fables which certainly enables
Us to survive the storms.
So don't be foolish and don't build your...
Your house on sand
'Cause with the blowing rain,
Your house will come crashing down!

Chorus:
So be like the man who built his house
Upon the rock foundation.
When rains come and the winds blow
And they beat against your house,
You'll be safe if you have built your
House on...on solid rock.
This is the only foundation,
There's no other explanation,
Build on the Rock that is God!

Repeat Last Chorus
