Johnny Cash - The House Is Falling Down lyrics

Men had need of shelter from the evil, from the night The devil? wind was blowin? and from heaven came a light The Son of God, a carpenter and He came with a plan To build a house where heaven could be offered unto men When he came here, He laid down a mighty firm foundation And the columns and the beams were churches, scattered through the nation And then rooms were added to it on that same old solid rock And roofs were raised by willing hands, from the bottom to the top Then the people came and filled the house, were singing prayer and praise Some turned and rejected, His house fell on leaner days Oh, Son of God, oh Carpenter, will you come back around The blocks and beams are crumbling and the house is falling down Now the storm is raging and the devil's angry roar He's screaming at the windows and howlin? at the door And though the faithful few inside are standing true and strong The house has been neglected and it won't be standin? long Then the people came and filled the house, were singing prayer and praise Some turned and rejected, His house fell on leaner days Son of God, oh Carpenter, will you come back around Our blocks and beams are crumbling and the house is falling down Son of God, oh Carpenter, where you come back around The blocks and beams are crumbling and the house is fallin? down
