My cup was empty, now it overflows
The sky was grey but now my garden grows
My soul's on fire and my heart's aflame
I've got more blessings than a man can claim

Standing on the rock...
Life is getting better every day
Sweet compassion's coming over me
Gonna keep on walking in the safety zone
Till that old black carriage come and take me home

Standing on the rock...
The flood did rise but my feet stayed dry
The sun stayed with me when the tide was high
Then I went to the river and washed my soul
I asked my forgiver to make me whole

Standing on the rock...
