I spent the first half of my life
Chasing everything but You,
And looking back at my prodigal past
I now see that Your Words are all true,
Time lays waste every kingdom and castle
Not built on, by, and for You,
We can choose which foundation we’ll build on
We can build on the Rock or on sand,
We can heed the Words of a loving God
Or the volumes penned by man’s hand,
For God’s Word endures forever
Every promise, purpose, command,
And when fierce storms of life come beating down
Only lives built on Christ will stand.

Isaiah 40:6-8,  1Peter 1:23-25,  Matthew 7:24-27
