Anne Wilson – This House Lyrics

This House Lyrics – Anne Wilson

Pain will come
Tears will flow
Sorrow’s gonna fight for my soul
But Heaven knows where I stand

Rains will pour
Winds will blow
Floods are gonna rise oh I know
But hope ain’t built on sinking sand

I’ve seen enough to know

You could lay bricks
You could dig a foundation
You could build up 10,000 feet tall
But if it don’t stand on the word of the Lord this house gonna fall

You could put a cross right up on the steeple
You could stain glass on every wall
But if it don’t stand on the word of the Lord this house gonna fall

Empty words
Are like empty rooms
You can have it all but it only proves
That without love it’s just for show

And you can give
It all away
You can even do it in Jesus’ name
But without love you’re gonna do it alone

You could lay bricks
You could dig a foundation
You could build up 10,000 feet tall
But if it don’t stand on the word of the Lord this house gonna fall

You could put a cross right up on the steeple
You could stain glass on every wall
But if it don’t stand on the word of the Lord this house gonna fall

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood, my righteousness
And I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood, my righteousness
And I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name

You could lay bricks
You could dig a foundation
You could build up 10,000 feet tall
But if it don’t stand on the word of the Lord this house gonna fall
This house gonna fall

You could lay bricks
You could dig a foundation
You could build up 10,000 feet tall
But if it don’t stand on the word of the Lord this house gonna fall
This house gonna fall

You could put a cross right up on the steeple
You could stain glass on every wall
But if it don’t stand on the word of the Lord this house gonna fall

If it don’t stand on the word of the Lord this house gonna fall
