Chenoweth, Kristin - Upon This Rock Lyrics



When others see with earthly light,
Just what the wanna see
You will see the things that never die
You will know and recognize
My simple child like faith
The priceless truth others will deny

When others say he's just a man
Who likes to dream his dream
When others call a miracle a myth
You listen for eternity in moments as they pass
And see with spirit eyes what others miss

[Chorus]
Upon this rock I'll build my kingdom
And on this rock, forever and ever it shall stand
And though 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

A famous simple carpenter, you see the sun of God
If you could choose to lose when you could win
If you would give your life away with nothing in return
Then you are where my kingdom will begin

[Chorus]

I'll build my kingdom
And on this rock the river shall sing
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!
UPON THIS ROCK!

    Not a Christian but I love the drama of this song. I feel like religion can be a beautiful inspiration with a positive role in your life.

    Lady has some pipes, no doubt. At first, I thought she was rushing it and not giving the song its due, but man, on that last chorus when the brass kicks in and the choir lays right there in the groove, I thought, "Oh yeah, an uptempo arrangement really gives this song new life and makes it Kris's. And she belts out that high C with no apologies given nor needed! As if she owns it. Which, apparently, she does. Thanks for sharing this recording.

  6. 김유진

    Another incredible vocal by Kristin! She could sing the phone book and make it beautiful!

  8. Inés de Erausquin

    Imagine being one of those high school kids! They hardly sound like high schoolers; what a powerful sound. And Kristin is killer as always.

    I get so tired of people asking me all the time "why" I'm a Christian. I've started e-mailing them this particular video. It answers every question, and  with great beauty. Thanks for posting and thanks for singing!!!!!
