Can anyone provide the lyrics to the gospel song, Where Will You Build? I've heard it as a bluegrass-style duet. Thanks much.

WHERE WILL YOU BUILD
C. Louvin / I. Louvin
As sung by The Louvin Brothers on "Louvin Brothers, Vol. 1: The Family Who Prays" (2011)

CHORUS: Where will you build, friend; where will you build?
On the sinking sand, on the rock on the hill?
Through the rain and storm, will your building stand?
It's sure to fall if you're building on the sand.

Jesus spoke in parables that we might understand
Of the foolish man that built his house upon the sand.
When the rain and storm came down and beat upon that house,
Jesus said it fell and great was its fall.

Then Jesus teaching his disciples spoke of the man,
The wise man that built his house upon the solid rock.
When the rain and storm came down and beat upon that house,
Jesus tells us in his word that house will knock(?).

Where will you build, friend, where will you build
On the sinking sand, on the rock, on the hill
Through the rain and storm will your building stand
It's sure to fall if you're building on the sand

Jesus spoke in parables that we might understand
Of the foolish man who built his house upon the sand
When the rain and storm came down and beat upon that house
Jesus said it fell and great was it's fall

Where will you build, friend, where will you build
On the sinking sand, on the rock, on the hill
Through the rain and storm will your building stand
It's sure to fall if you're building on the sand

The Jesus teaching his Disciples spoke of the man
The wise man that built his house upon the solid rock
When the rain and storm came down and beat upon that house
Jesus tells this sinless world, that house fell not

Where will you build, friend, where will you build
On the sinking sand, on the rock, on the hill
Through the rain and storm will your building stand
It's sure to fall if you're building on the sand

Where will you build, friend, where will you build
On the sinking sand, on the rock, on the hill
Through the rain and storm will your building stand
It's sure to fall if you're building on the sand
