[G]Except the Lord build the house except the [C]Lord build the house
They [G]labor they [E7]labor in [A7]vain [D7]
Except the [G]Lord keep the city except the [C]Lord keep the city
The [G]watchman [D7]wake up but in [G]vain
Thy labor is lost though you [C]gain the whole world
If you [G]seek only [E7]worldly [A7]rewards [D7]
Though you [G]have but a penance you’r[C]e rich as a king
If thy [G]labor has [D7]been for the [G]Lord
No thoughts will corrupt no [C]beast can break in
If your [G]wealth is [E7]peace in your [A7]soul [D7]
Oh [G]be not afraid though the [C]storms beat your house
Thy [G]building will [D7]stand firm and [G]hold
The watchman [D7]wake up but in [C]vai[G]n[/chordpress]
