Upon This Rock...

"...and upon this rock I will build my church and the
gates of Hell will not prevail against it."
Matthew 16:18

Above the ruins of the Central Pentecostal Ministries Church in storm-ravaged 
Lynn Haven, Florida the cross remains standing unscathed by the 
terrible winds and heavy rains of Hurricane Michael.

The cross, it standeth fast-
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Defying every blast-
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
The winds of Hell have blown,
The world its hate hath shone,
Yet it is not overthrown-
Hallelujah for the cross!

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah for the cross;
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
It shall never suffer loss!

It is the old cross still-
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Its triumph let us tell-
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
The grace of God here shone
Thru Christ, the blessed Son,
Who did for sin atone-
Hallelujah for the cross!


'Twas here the debt was paid-
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Our sins on Jesus laid-
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
So round the cross we sing
Of Christ, our offering,
Of Christ, our living king-
Hallelujah for the cross!

"Hallelujah For The Cross"

the grain to reap for the Master!"
