When others see with earthly eyes
Just what they wannna see
You will see the face that never die

You will know and recognize
My simple child like face
The priceless truth others will deny

When others say, "He’s just a man
Who likes to dream his dream"
When others call a miracle, a myth

You listen for eternity
In moments as they pass
And see with spirit eyes what others miss

Upon this rock, I’ll build my kingdom
And on this rock, forever and ever it shall stand
And though the powers of Hell itself
Shall never more prevail against it
For Satan’s thrones are built on sinking sand

Upon this rock, I’ll build my kingdom
And on this rock, forever and ever it shall stand
Upon this rock of revelation
I’ll build a strong and mighty nation
And it shall stand the storms of time, upon this rock

A famous simple carpenter
You see the son of God
If You could choose to lose when You could win

If You would give Your life away
With nothing in return
Then You are where my kingdom will begin

Upon this rock, I’ll build my kingdom
And on this rock, forever and ever it shall stand
And though the powers of Hell itself
Shall never more prevail against it
For Satan’s thrones are built on sinking sand

Upon this rock, I’ll build my kingdom
And on this rock, forever and ever it shall stand
Upon this rock of revelation
I’ll build a strong and mighty nation
And it shall stand the storms of time

Upon this rock, I’ll build my kingdom
And on this rock, forever it shall stand
Upon this rock of revelation
I will build a strong and mighty nation
And it shall stand the storms of time

Upon this rock, I'll build my church
Upon this rock, upon this rock
