“I” WILL BUILD MY CHURCH




No statement by Christ was ever more succinctly and plainly stated than upon this rock “I” will build my church. While he sent forth those who carry his message nothing is accomplished unless he is the architect and builder.

This is truly hard to keep in focus when the message bearers labor and are successful in building congregations.

The crowds are not acid test for rock stars attract multi thousands to their performances. Let us never forget if Christ does not build it, it is not his church, but merely a crowd making noise.

Words by Gloria Gaither Music by Dony McGuire

When others see with earthly eyes just what they want to see,
You will see the things that never die.
You will know and recognize by simple, childlike faith
The priceless truth that others will deny.
When others say I’m just a man who liked to dream his dreams,
When others call a miracle a myth,
You’ll listen for eternity in moment as they pass
And see with spirit eyes what others miss.

Upon this Rock I’ll build my Kingdom,
Upon this Rock forever and ever it shall stand.
And all the powers of hell itself
Shall never more prevail against it,
For satan’s thrones are built on sinking sand.
Upon this Rock I’ll build my Kingdom
And on this Rock forever and ever it shall stand.

Upon this Rock of revelation I’ll build a strong and mighty nation
And it shall stand the storms of time upon this Rock.
If in a simple carpenter you see the Son of God,
If you will choose to lose when you could win;
If you will give your life away for nothing in return,
Then you are where My Kingdom will begin.
Upon this Rock I’ll build my Kingdom,
Upon this Rock forever and ever it shall stand.

And all the powers of hell itself
Shall never more prevail against it,
For satan’s thrones are built on sinking sand.
Upon this Rock I’ll build my Kingdom
And on this Rock forever and ever it shall stand.

Upon this Rock of revelation I’ll build a strong and mighty nation
And it shall stand the storms of time upon this Rock.
Upon this Rock of revelation I’ll build a strong and mighty nation
And it shall stand the storms of time upon this Rock.
I’ll build my church upon this Rock.
On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, upon this Rock!
