Words from the Bible. Music by Katrina Wylie. Copyright 1998. A dramatic rendition of the words, good for a large voice. More narrative than melodic but with some melody throughout. The words from the bible are placed in a different order for dramatic effect; the house built on the rock comes after the house built on sand.

Except the Lord Build the House

( Psalms 127:1, Matthew 7: 24, 25, 26, 27 )
Music by Katrina Wylie

Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it:
For who is God save the Lord? Or who is a rock save our God?
Everyone that heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them not
Shall be likened unto a foolish man,
Who built his house upon the sand:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew,
And beat upon that house and it fell,
And great was the fall of it.
But whosoever heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them
I will liken him unto a wise man,
Which built his house upon a rock:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew,
And beat upon that house and it fell not,
For it was founded upon a rock.
Therefore whosoever heareth these things and doeth them
I will liken him unto a wise man,
Who built his house upon a rock: upon a rock, upon a rock.
