Lyrics

CHORUS:

We will build this house with the strength of our arms,

With the love of our neighbors we will build this house.

We will build this house as a shelter from all harm,

With the open door of justice, we will build this house.

 

A house of warmth, a house just right,

A house to keep away the darkest night.

A house of hope, a house of peace,

A house where all within may safely sleep. CHORUS

 

A house that's built to remind us all

Of our connections, whether great or small.

A house of dignity, a house without shame,

A house with walls bearing all our names. CHORUS:

 

It seems so simple, it seems so sweet:

A roof above you, enough food to eat.

In this richest nation on this world of cares

If we've enough, then we've enough to share. CHORUS
