Version:

I'm gonna build my house on solid rock
I'm gonna build my house on solid rock
So I don't wake up to a nasty shock
To find nothing but a pile of rubble

Don't want to build a house on foundations
That will wobble
Don't want to build a house with any
Dodgy bricks
Don't want to build a house that will
Shake like jelly
I want to shout out loud
Of this house you can be proud

Jesus said take my words and put them
Into action
Make these words He said foundations in
Your life
Build with care or else your house will
Surely tumble
And it's not a clever trick to own a heap of bricks

Jesus said take my words and put them
Into action
Make these words He said foundations in
Your life
And when the river comes and crashes up
Against you
You won't get washed away instead you'll
Cheer and say

Yes I built my house on solid rock
Yes I built my house on solid rock
And I won't wake up to a nasty shock
To find nothing but a pile of rubble
