Unless the Lord builds the house
They labor in vain to try at all
Building anything not according to His call
Unless the Lord wants it done
You better not work another day
Building anything that will stand in His way, oh

You love the lord and it seems like He's been leading
You've asked Him to bless all your plans
But are you so sure you're just doing what you want to
Building your house on the sand, the sand

Unless the Lord builds the house
They labor in vain to try at all
Building anything not according to His call
Unless the Lord wants it done
You better not work another day
Building anything that will stand in His way, oh

Working so hard at the things that you believe in
No one can tear you away
But don't you lose sight of the very one who calls you
You may be sorry some day, some day

For wood, hay and stubble, will all burn up in the fire
But to love the Lord with all your heart, should be your one desire
Love the Lord

Unless the Lord wants it done
You better not work another day
Building anything that will stand
Anything that will stand, anything that will stand

Oh where is the love, where is the light?
