lyrics

Based on Matthew 7:24–27

VERSE 1
Let me tell you ‘bout the saddest news
It’s the reason that I’m singin’ the blues
I built myself a house on some seaside land
Along came a storm and it got out of hand
I heard a sound, my house fell down!
Now all I got is a pile of sand

CHORUS
I got the blues, the sand pile blues
That’s all that’s left from my foolishness
I didn’t dig deep, my foundation was weak
So here’s the key: don’t be like me
Or you’ll be singin’ the sand pile blues

VERSE 2
I shoulda known what was up ahead
My next door neighbor came to me and said
“Hey there, friend, you better make a plan
To build your house on a rock if you can
And when the winds come rushin’ in
You won’t be stuck with a pile of sand.”

VERSE 3
So, here’s the lesson from the things I’ve been taught:
You have to build your life on the solid Rock
Believe in Jesus that He died for your sins
And saved your life so you could follow Him
He’ll make you stand and in the end
You won’t be sittin’ in a pile of sand
