Words and music by Greg X. Volz

Back to the Rock that is higher than I
Take me to the well that will never run dry
Take me, take me, Lord
To the Rock that is higher than I

There was a man who built his house upon the sinking sand
When the wind and rain came, it washed it all away
There was another man who learned to watch and pray
And he built his house upon a rock of Jesus and it still stands today

Take me to the Rock
To the Rock of my salvation
Take me to the Rock
To the well for every nation
Take me to the Rock

Everyone who hears the voice of Jesus and obeys
Is like the man who built his house upon the rock that stands
It was the Son of Man who gave us this command
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, your mind, your strength
