Build to Last

(© 2003, Tammy Ann Winn ~ ASCAP)
You cannot simply talk the talk
Christ made it clear on the Mount
It’s time for us to walk the walk
What the good news is all about

Share wealth with the poor
Free the oppressed
Give the needy power
Govern with justice

Did you hear the story of the foolish man
He was warned but ignored the message
He was told to find a foundation
But instead he built on sand

The winds picked up and the rains came down
That house on sand fell to the ground
Oh great was its fall

But oh no, not me Lord
For you I will build on rock
For you I will build to last
For you I will build to last

Oh no, not me Lord
For you I will build on rock
For you I will build to last
For you I will build to last

Encourage understanding
Leave hypocrisy behind
Let go of prejudices
Open wide your mind

Did you hear the story of the foolish man
He was warned but ignored the message
He was told to find a foundation
But instead he built on sand

The winds picked up and the rains came down
That house on sand fell to the ground
Oh great was its fall

But oh no, not me Lord
For you I will build on rock
For you I will build to last
For you I will build to last

Oh no, not me Lord
For you I will build on rock
For you I will build to last
For you I will build to last

Oh no, not me Lord
For you I will build on rock
For you I will build to last
For you I will build to last

(Based on Matthew 7:24-27)
