Verse 1:
           Am                 F
All of the best-laid plans of mice and men
   C         G
so often go astray,
            Am                   F
and all the plots and schemes of kings and queens
               C                G
shift like the wind that blows away.
F   C          G   Am                      F
    I dare not trust the sweetest frame of man
C          G7
but in the name of Jesus.
Chorus:
C                    F
  Christ, the Solid Rock I am standing on
Am
  through the pouring rain.
G7
No, I won't be afraid.
C                    F
  Christ, the Solid Rock I am standing on
Am
  I am here to stay.
G7
No, I won't be afraid.
Am   F                     C    G
     No, I won't be afraid.
Verse 2:
       Am                         F
If I'm poor as dirt and left with empty hands,
           C                G
I am still rich beyond my dreams.
               Am              F
'Cause all the other ground is sinking sand,
              C             G7
yes, I've got everything I need.
Mid section:
Am            G/B
  I won't be afraid of the dark
     C                          F
when You light the stars in the sky.
Am                       G/B
Yes, I will cling to the foot of the cross
       C/E               F   G   Am   G/B   C
'cause my Solid Rock is alive!
   C                F
On Christ the Solid Rock I stand,
    Am               G7
all other ground is sinking sand.

All of the best-laid plans of mice and men
So often go astray
And all the plots and schemes of kings and queens
Shift like the wind that blows away
I dare not trust the sweetest frame of man
But in the name of Jesus

Christ, the Solid Rock I am standing on
Through the pouring rain
No, I won’t be afraid
Christ, the Solid Rock I am standing on
I am here to stay
No, I won’t be afraid

If I’m poor as dirt and left with empty hands
I am still rich beyond my dreams
‘Cause all the other ground is sinking sand,
Yes, I've got everything I need in

I won’t be afraid of the dark
When You light the stars in the sky
Yes, I will cling to the foot of the cross
‘Cause my Solid Rock is alive! He is alive!

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
