This house was forged on rock and stone.

It'll bend, but not break. It'll shake, but not fall.

It's hinges surged from steel and gold.

This house was forged on rock and stone.

This house was built from walls of iron.

Sealed shut from winds and rainstorm clouds.

No wave or sea could taint or drown this house with walls built up from iron.

This house was formed on silent prayers.

It's roof won't cave beneath selfish cares.

No pain, no loss, no heartache dares to stand against its silent prayers.

This house will never sink in sand.

The ground cannot break on its fruitful land.

Its floorboards will forever stand.

This house will never sink in sand.

This house was forged on rock and stone.

It'll bend, but not break. It'll shake, but not fall.

Its hinges surged from steel and gold.

This house was forged on rock and stone.
