The House Is Falling Down

()

Men had need of shelter from the evil, from the night
The devil wind was blowin and from heaven came a light
The Son of God, a carpenter and He came with a plan
To build a house where heaven could be offered unto men

Refrain: (Bum)

When he came here, He laid down a mighty firm foundation
And the columns and the beams were churches, scattered through the nation
And then rooms were added to it on that same old solid rock
And roofs were raised by willing hands, from the bottom to the top

Then the people came and filled the house, were singing prayer and praise
Some turned and rejected, His house fell on leaner days
Oh, Son of God, oh Carpenter, will you come back around
The blocks and beams are crumbling and the house is falling down

Now the storm is raging and the devils angry roar
Hes screaming at the windows and howlin at the door
And though the faithful few inside are standing true and strong
The house has been neglected and it wont be standin long

Refrain: (Bum Bum)

Then the people came and filled the house, were singing prayer and praise
Some turned and rejected, His house fell on leaner days
Son of God, oh Carpenter, will you come back around
Our blocks and beams are crumbling and the house is falling down

Son of God, oh Carpenter, where you come back around
The blocks and beams are crumbling and the house is fallin down
