Capo on 3rd fret

Am                                 E
Built on the Rock the Church shall stand
Am        C             D E Am
Even when steeples are falling.
Am                             E
Crumbled have spires in ev'ry land;
Am               C          D  E Am
Bells still are chiming and calling,
Am          Em        C   G  C
Calling the young and old to rest,
Am         C       B       E
But above all the soul distressed,
Am           F       E   Am
Longing for rest everlasting.

Am                          E
Surely in temples made with hands
Am            C            D E  Am
God, the Most High, is not dwelling;
Am                          E
High above earth his temple stands,
Am          C        D E  Am
All earthly temples excelling.
Am         Em        C      G C
Yet he who dwells in heav'n above
Am         C         B     E
Chooses to live with us in love,
Am         F          E  Am
Making our bodies his temple.

Am                           E
We are God's house of living stones,
Am            C       D E Am
Built for his own habitation.
Am                            E
He through baptismal grace us owns
Am           C           D E Am
Heirs of his wondrous salvation.
Am          Em      C    G  C
Were we but two his name to tell,
Am           C          B     E
Yet he would deign with us to dwell
Am           F             E Am
With all his grace and his favor.

Am                              E
Here stands the font before our eyes,
Am          C          D E  Am
Telling how God did receive us.
Am                              E
Th' altar recalls Christ's sacrifice
Am           C         D E   Am
And what the sacrament gives us.
Am             Em         C    G  C
Here sound the Scriptures that proclaim
Am           C       B       E
Christ yesterday, today, the same,
Am      F           E  Am
And evermore, our Redeemer.

Am                              E
Grant then, O God, your will be done,
Am             C                D E Am
That, when the church bells are ringing,
Am                       E
Many in saving faith may come
Am               C          D E  Am
Where Christ his message is bringing
Am         Em      C   G    C
"I know my own; my own know me.
Am           C         B          E
You, not the world, my face shall see.
Am         F              E Am
My peace I leave with you always."
