He’s Given Me A Rock

Here is a song that came to me about a month ago and wouldn’t let go until I recorded it…that was today Nov 6, 2011.

Lyrics

He’s Given Me A Rock

He’s given me a rock
A place where I can stand  * 1
He’s given me a rock
A place where I can stand
I will stand upon this rock all else is…
Sinking sand

A Rock not cut out by human hands was seen in the dream of the king of Babylon *2
A Rock not cut out by human hands was seen in the dream of the king of Babylon
And when the rock came down on the kingdoms of the world, all the kingdoms of the world were gone
That’s the rock I stand upon.

The Rock that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone * 3
The Rock that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone
The temple of the living God is built on Him on Him alone
He’s the rock I stand upon

There is no other Rock, no other Rock, no other Rock than our God  *4
He’s the Rock of Ages
He’s the Rock that Saves us * 5
He’s the Rock that we stand upon
There is no other Rock, no other Rock, no other Rock than our God

Now when I was a youth I looked for truth in a far away land
Now when I was a youth I looked for truth in a far away land
But when it came to putting my foot down I just couldn’t find a place to stand
We all need a Rock….we can stand upon

When they come to put my body down in the grave
When they finally come to put my body down in the grave
I’ll still be standing on the same Rock I am today
That’s the Rock I stand upon.

There is no other Rock, no other Rock, no other Rock than our God
There is no other Rock, no other Rock, no other Rock than our God
He’s the Rock of Ages
He’s the Rock that Saves us
He’s the Rock that we stand upon

Jesus is the Rock
Jesus is the Rock

He’s the mighty rock,
He’s the everlasting rock
He’s the true rock
He’s the solid rock,

Jesus is the Rock

The Song and the Word

Many if not most of my songs of faith are hewn from the Word.
This song references a number of scriptures about God as our Rock.

Psalm 95:1

Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.  

*1.

Exodus 33:21, God said to Moses, “There is a place near me where you can stand on a rock.

Genesis 49:24

But his bow remained steady, his strong arms stayed limber, because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob, because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel,

Deuteronomy 32:4

He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.

 *2

Daniel 2:34

While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them.

Daniel 2:45

This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands—a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces.

 *3

PSALM 118:22-23

22 The stone the builders rejected

has become the cornerstone;

23 the LORD has done this,

and it is marvelous in our eyes.

*4

2 Samuel 22:31-33

31 “As for God, his way is perfect:

The LORD’s word is flawless;

he shields all who take refuge in him.

32 For who is God besides the LORD?

And who is the Rock except our God?

33 It is God who arms me with strength[a]

and keeps my way secure.

Isaiah 44:8

Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one.”

*5

Psalm 62:2

Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
