Lyrics: Part 1

We will build a temple, a House to the Lord.
Sacred and Holy, to fulfill all His words.
We'll prepare ev'ry needful thing,
And when it's complete,
With heav'n we'll joyfully sing.

Part 2

Holy, holy. Holiness to the Lord!
Holy, holy! House of the Lord!
Holy, holy! Holiness to the Lord!
House of God!

Part 3

House of pray'r, house of fasting, house of faith.
This is the house of the Lord.
House of learning and glory, house of order.
House of God!
