[Intro]
[|D|D Dsus D|D|D Dsus D|]
[Verse 1]
D
I’ve built up my own name
G D
But the walls couldn’t stand
D
I’ve trusted my own strength
A
But it was sinking sand
F≥7/A≥ Bm G D
So I put my ruins into Your hands
D
And watched You restore them
A G
Like only You can
[Chorus]
D
IF THE LORD BUILDS THE HOUSE
G D
NO—BODY CAN TEAR IT DOWN
Bm A
IF THE LORD BUILDS THE HOUSE
G D
NO—BODY CAN TEAR IT DOWN
D D/F≥
WHEN IT’S BUILT ON HIS NAME, THERE’S
G D
NOTHING GONNA SHAKE THIS GROUND
A/C≥ Bm A
IF THE LORD BUILDS THE HOUSE
G D
NO—BODY CAN TEAR IT DOWN
[Turnaround]
G D
Ooo ooo
[Verse 2]
D
The bricks may be weathered
G D
Through storm and through fire
D
But what God holds together
A
It stands firm every time
F≥7/A≥ Bm G D
Cause my life is anchored on this solid truth
D
That whatever God’s building
A G
No, it can’t be moved
REPEAT CHORUS
REPEAT TURNAROUND
[Bridge]

Everything we have is Yours
