Lyrics

Building on faith, new lives are possible,
building on trust, habitats grow,
here is a roof, housing a family,
here is the proof that we care —
we’ll build on faith, faith with a heart
feeling humanity’s need,
we’ll do our part, lifting the load,
joining the word to the deed.

Maybe we’re raw, God’s new apprentices,
maybe we’re skilled, ready to go,
all in a team, proud to be laborers,
raising the roof for our cause —
we’ll build on faith, faith with a heart
feeling humanity’s need,
we’ll do our part, lifting the load,
joining the word to the deed.

More than a base, more than a dwelling place,
more than a home, building will prove,
blessing us all, making a difference:
this is a labor of love —
we’ll build on faith, faith with a heart
feeling humanity’s need,
we’ll do our part, lifting the load,
joining the word to the deed.
