Upon This Rock

Upon this Rock of Jesus Christ our Saviour,

Is built the Church, His Body here on earth;

An edifice, both living and eternal,

Of souls transformed by spiritual rebirth.

Upon this Rock, a tried and sure foundation,

We stand secure against the storms of sin,

For by His Spirit we may be victorious,

Proclaiming purity without, within.

Upon This Rock, we must reach forth to others,

Who flounder still upon life's restless sea.

Oh may this LIghthouse ever gleam more brightly

Reflecting Christ, Who calls "Come Unto Me".
