This House Will Stand (v.2)
Lyrics
This House will Stand (v.2)
© 2011 Bruce Mills SOCAN


This house was built on rugged rocky land
Beyond the trees on a mountain high
This house was built with loving hearts and caring hands
This house will stand, this house will stand

This house was made to outlast the ages
Let floods and winds; let thunder come
This house was made with blessings from above
Eternal place, our shelter and our home

Chorus:
Though rain may fall
And raging fires burn
This house will stand
Foundation deep and firm
This house will always hold us
Safe and warm inside -
Oh place of comfort, place of peace, place of light (life)

This house will be (oh, yes it will) a refuge for all humankind
A house of mercy; of hope and healing
No hunger here - no loneliness is found
This house will be - this house will ever be!

harmonica solo

Chorus 2 (variation):
Though rain may fall
And troubles come along
This house will stand
Foundation firm
This house will hold us
Safe and warm inside its loving walls -
This house will stand forever strong!

T+5

This house was built on rugged, rocky old land
Way beyond the trees on a mountain high
This house was built with loving hearts and caring hands
This house will stand, this house will stand
This house will stand, this house will stand
This house will stand
