Whosoever heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. Matthew 7:24–25
God of truth! Thy sons should be
Firmly grounded upon Thee;
Ever on the Rock abide,
High above the changing tide.
Theirs is the unwavering mind,
No more tossed with every wind;
No more doth their ’stablished heart
From the living God depart.
Father, strengthen Thou my will;
With Thine own steadfastness fill;
Rooted, grounded, may I be,
Fixed in Thy stability.
Henceforth may I nobly stand;
Build no longer on the sand;
But defy temptation’s shock,
Firmly grounded on the Rock.
