The Rock That Doesn’t Roll (Live with Cliff Richard)
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Cliff Richard: Thank you very much. You know when I first became a Christian I hunted around in vain to find Christian Rock 'n' Roll music that I could relate to. I mean it just, it just all sounded horrible. It's the best word I can use. And then I was introduced to a name that I didn't know and a album I had never heard before. And I just was overjoyed and thrilled because suddenly I could relate to this music and there seemed to be a Christian who could do as well as, if not better than the rest of us. He's written so many songs. I've recorded and I've sung so many of them. I just love his work and I would like you please welcome, Larry Norman.) Well, I was lost and blind when a friend of mine Took me by the hand And He led me to His Kingdom It was in another land. Now I feel so strange, my life is changed When I think of the past, it's all rearranged Well, Wowie, zowie, He saved my soul He's the rock that doesn't roll. He's the rock that doesn't roll He's the rock that will not roll You know He's good for the body and great for the soul He's the rock that doesn't roll. (Sing it) I was all alone like a rolling stone I was going nowhere fast I was on the road so far from home When the future touched my past. Now I feel so blessed 'cause He gave me His rest I finally feel like I've passed my test I wanna be like Him, that's my goal Like a rock that doesn't roll. He's the rock that doesn't roll He's the rock that will not roll You know He's good for the body and great for the soul He's the rock that doesn't roll. Roll on! Lost, blind, friend of mine Took me by the hand And He led me to His Kingdom That was in another land. Now I feel so blessed, He gave me His rest I finally feel like I've passed my test Wowie, zowie, well the Cat's got soul He's the rock that doesn't roll. Well, He's the rock that doesn't roll He's the rock that will not roll You know He's good for the body and great for the soul He's the rock that doesn't roll I wanna tell you... He's the rock that doesn't roll He's the rock that will not roll You know, He's good for the body and great for the soul He's the rock that doesn't roll.
