A lowly carpenter with nails in His hands
Came to Earth to build a church that will stand
Against the powers of death, darkness, and sin.
And with nothing more than common Men
He built a church that would not end
Though threatened from without and within
And though some thought the cross meant the church was dead
An empty tomb would prove instead
That He would rise again to reign evermore.

And the church will stand triumphantly
Against the powers of Earth and Hell
Weathered and battle-scarred, still the church is alive and well.
And though kingdoms may rise, every kingdom will fall
That’s built on sinking sand,
But only the church of the living God forever will stand.

Down through time the church has stood the test
Though evil men have tried their best
To destroy this church not built on sinking sand.
And when a brother would fall and the world would scorn
This church will stand, it will brave the storm.
For it’s built upon the Rock and not sinking sand.
And though some think the church is doomed to fail,
Time will prove that truth will prevail
When the eastern sky shall part, the whole world will know.



from A Servant's Heart, released September 1, 1992
