Words and music by Bob Hartman and John Elefante
Based on Matthew 7:24-27, 16:18

The earth is shakin'
It's like a bad dream
This world is crumblin'
Comin' apart at the seam but
I am on the Rock

Everywhere I'm turning it's only bad news
This bomb is tickin' and we're getting to the end of the fuse but
I am on the Rock

(Chorus)
I am on the Rock, the sure foundation
I am on the Rock, His revelation
Though the winds may blow
And though the floods may grow
I shall not be moved, 'cause I am on the Rock

The storm's approaching, I'm standing high and dry
Firmly planted on the Rock that is higher than I
I am on the Rock

Kingdoms failing, they fall around me
Plans eroded, and washing away to the sea

There is no Rock in this world but our God
