Two Foundations

I see you’re looking around for somewhere to build your home,
Where you can build a cottage, or maybe a dome,
Looking for some land where you can anchor your floor,
Searching for a place to put up your door,
Some say build it here, others say build it there,
Some say it doesn’t matter, build it anywhere,
But seek out the foundation that brings you life,
Build your house up on the rock of Christ!

Chorus
Two foundations rising on a calm sunny day,
Two foundations rising, one rock, the other clay,
Two foundations rising, in the clear sunlight,
Two foundations rising, everything looks alright,
Then the storm came, and the rain beat down,
And the wind blew, the fury of it’s sound,
And the house shook, the clay washed away,
But the rock held, to see another day!

I see you’re looking ‘round for some high dry land,
A place where you can live and make your stand,
A place that won’t fail you when the heavy trials come,
But someone is suggesting some sandy land,
You can get it real cheap, better get it while you can,
They say it’s a deal, you just can’t loose,
But if it’s not the rock of Christ, they’re playin’ you for a fool!

Chorus
Two foundations rising on a calm sunny day,
Two foundations rising, one rock, the other clay,
Two foundations rising, in the clear sunlight,
Two foundations rising, everything looks alright,
Then the storm came, and the rain beat down,
And the wind blew, the fury of it’s sound,
And the house shook, the clay washed away,
But the rock held, to see another day!

I see you’re searching for a place to raise your family,
Good solid ground on a quiet street,
A place where you can know your neighbors as your friends,
A place that won’t change with the direction of the wind,
But someone wants to give you an unstable piece of earth,
A hollowed out version of a solid piece of turf,
But don’t fall for a deal that’s less than true,
Jesus wants to be a solid rock for you!

Chorus
Two foundations rising on a calm sunny day,
Two foundations rising, one rock, the other clay,
Two foundations rising, in the clear sunlight,
Two foundations rising, everything looks alright,
Then the storm came, and the rain beat down,
And the wind blew, the fury of it’s sound,
And the house shook, the clay washed away,
But the rock held, to see another day!
