Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: It is time to build in the church of our Lord. It is time to consider our ways. This great work is before us, the need sounds its cry to all and God seeketh those who obey.
Verse 2: Have we built our homes, have we cared for our own while neglecting the temple of God? But it’s time; let us work giving all to our blessed Lord, ye chosen, ye people of God. God.
Verse 3: Let us gather wood in the mountains of truth. Hammer faith, hammer hope to its frame. Now let’s strengthen our hands for the work, sound the Word now as we stand on the pow’r of His name.
Chorus: Now have faith, never fear, “I am with you, My spirit abides with you. Now have faith, I will fill it with glory” Build the church, build the temple of God.
