Lyrics

Are your feet on the Rock Christ Jesus?
Has He plucked you from the mire and clay?
Is He leading you on to victory?
Are your feet on the Rock today?

Refrain

The Rock is the full salvation,
It saves us from condemnation;
’Tis the Rock where all may hide
In the riven bleeding side;
Are your feet on the Rock Christ Jesus?

Are your feet on the Rock Christ Jesus?
Are you standing in His strength alone?
Can you sing of the full salvation?
Are your feet on the cornerstone?

Refrain

Are your feet on the Rock Christ Jesus?
Are you sheltered from the tempest shock?
From temptations within, without you?
Are your feet on the solid Rock?
