Unless the Lord is present count it dead
Whatever that is built with human hands;
It may exist a thousand years ahead
But might as well be built with desert sand.
A city that’s forgotten God is doomed
Like Sodom and Gormorrah full of sin;
Then soon by wickedness it is consumed,
As dead inside as though it’s never been.
Invite the Lord to sanction all you do,
And let His Spirit guide your heart and mind;
The earthly things that honor God are true,
And all without His love will fall behind.
Let God build both your church and family,
And everywhere you go, there He will be.
Except the LORD build the house,
they labour in vain that build it:
except the LORD keep the city,
the watchman waketh but in vain.
Psalm 127:1 KJV
