Wise Man and Foolish Man

Song Video

Lyrics

The wise man built his house upon the rock
The wise man built his house upon the rock
The wise man built his house upon the rock
And the house on the rock stood firm.

Oh the rains came down
And the floods came up
The rains came down
And the floods came up
The rains came down
And the floods came up
And the house on the rock stood firm.

The foolish man built his house upon the sand
The foolish man built his house upon the sand
The foolish man built his house upon the sand
And the rains came tumbling down.

Oh the rains came down
And the floods came up
The rains came down
And the floods came up
The rains came down
And the floods came up
And the house on the sand went crash.

So build your life on the Lord Jesus Christ
So build your life on the Lord Jesus Christ
So build your life on the Lord Jesus Christ
And the blessings will come down.

Oh the blessings come down
As your prayers go up
The blessings come down
As your prayers go up
The blessings come down
As your prayers go up
So build your house on the rock.

The house goes "Splat" in this version

The wise man built his house upon the rock,
The wise man built his house upon the rock,
The wise man built his house upon the rock,
And the rains came tumbling down!

The rains came down and the floods came up,
The rains came down and the floods came up,
The rains came down and the floods came up,
And the house on the rock stood firm.

The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
And the rains came tumbling down!

The rains came down and the floods came up,
The rains came down and the floods came up,
The rains came down and the floods came up,
And the house on the sand went SPLAT!
