The words to The Wise Man Built His House Upon The Rock is based on a parable that Jesus told   - you can read it in the Bible, in Matthew chapter 7 verses 24-29.

The words of the chorus are as follows:

The wise man built his house upon the rock x 3
And the rains came tumbling down.
The rains came down and the floods came up x 3
And the house upon the rock stood firm.

The foolish man built his house upon the sands x 3
And the rains came tumbling down.
The rains came down and the floods came up x 3
And the house upon the sands fell flat.

So build your life on the Lord Jesus Christ x 3
And the blessings come tumbling down.
The prayers go up and the blessings come down x 3
So build your life on Christ.
