The wise man built his house upon the rock

The wise man built his house upon the rock,
the wise man built his house upon the rock,
the wise man built his house upon the rock,
and the rain came tumbling down.
The rain came down and the floods came up,
the rain came down and the floods came up,
the rain came down and the floods came up,
and the house on the rock stood firm.

2. The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
the foolish man built his house upon the sand,
the foolish man built his house upon the sand,
and the rain came tumbling down.
The rain came down and the floods came up,
the rain came down and the floods came up,
the rain came down and the floods came up,
and the house on the sand fell flat.

3. When Jesus finished all he had to say,
the crowds were filled with wonder on the day;
he calls on everybody to obey –
there’s no one else like him!
So when he speaks and you can hear, hear, hear,
then don’t be foolish when it’s clear, clear, clear;
be wise enough to use your ear, ear, ear,
then do just what he says!
