"A CASTLE MADE OF SAND"

A castle made of sand,
The storm comes, and it cannot stand.
But a mountain, a rocky mountain
Will hang on to the sun,
It will never be moved.
Like a tree planted by the river,
You'll grow tall,
And you can just bend with the wind.

Chorus:
You've got to live by faith alone,
Don't try and do a thing on your own.
If you're still, you'll hear His voice
Calling you on home.
Just for sake what's in your heart,
Lay it on the ground,
Turn around, walk away,
And start again.

Verse Two:
There's away which seemeth right to a man,
But the end is destruction.
Don't lean to your own understanding,
Or you will surely fall.
Follow the Son, let the light brighten your day.
Get out of yourself,
Get it all out of the way.

[Repeat Chorus Twice]

Turn around, walk away,
And start again.
