Hymn/Song Information

If God to build the house deny The build




If God to build the house deny,
The builders work is vain;
And towns, without his wakeful eye,
A useless watch maintain.


Before the morning beams arise,
Your painful work renew,
And, till the stars ascend the skies,
Your tiresome toil pursue;


Short be your sleep, and course your fare;
In vain, till God has blest;
But if his smiles attend your care,
You shall have food and rest.


Nor children, relatives, nor friends,
Shall real blessings prove,
Nor all the earthly joys he sends,
If sent without his love.
