Outside Savannah, spring of eighteen forty four
They drove the last nail in, and opened up the doors
And Jebediah Moore was the first to be baptized
I saw him married here and buried here
When the Yankees took his life

Now, I've felt the pain
Of people fightin' their own demons
And the presence
Of the power that finally freed them
I'm a bright and shiny beacon
Giving shelter in the storm
And every saint and sinner
I greet with open arms

I am the rock
I am stained glass and stone
The foundation
This town was built upon
And I've been standing
Strong and steady all these years
Held together by the faithful gathered here

I've heard the words of deliverance and damnation
And the sweet sound of redemption and salvation
Entire congregations with their voices raised in song
By the angels in my rectors, rejoice and sing along

I am the rock
I am stained glass and stone
The foundation
This town was built upon
And I've been standing
Strong and steady all these years
Held together by the faithful gathered here

And as long as there's a God above
And people still believe
My walls will never crumble
And I will always be

The rock
I am stained glass and stone
The foundation
This town was built upon
And I've been standing
Strong and steady all these years
Held together by the faithful gathered here

I am the rock
I am stained glass and stone
The foundation
This town was built upon
And I've been standing
Strong and steady all these years
Held together by the faithful gathered here

Outside Savannah, spring of eighteen forty-four
They drove the last nail in and opened up my doors
