How the mighty have fallen

Fred Dibnah brought them down

The chimney stacks of Bolton

Undermined and fired t’t ground


And that is what will happen

To a house that’s built on sand

It all comes crashing down

When storms rage through the land


And sadly that’s what happens

To human lives and all

When foundations are forgotten

And not put there at all


And when the words of Jesus

Are treated as passe

They will return to haunt us

They will not pass away


One day this life of mine will end

This edifice will fall

And what will they remember

If anything at all


Three things will last to tell them

I once stood on this ground

Faith and hope and love of God

And that will see them sound
