If I was a gambler
I tell you what I'd do
I'd quit my gambling
And I'd work on the building too

I'm a working on building
I'm a working on building
Hallelujah
I'm a working on building
For my Lord, for my Lord

It's a Holy Ghost building
It's a Holy Ghost building
Hallelujah
It's a Holy Ghost building
For my Lord, for my Lord

If I was a drunkard
I tell you what I would do
I'd quit my drinking
And I'd work on the building too

I'm a working on building
I'm a working on building
Hallelujah
I'm a working on building
For my Lord, for my Lord

It's a Holy Ghost building
It's a Holy Ghost building
Hallelujah
It's a Holy Ghost building
For my Lord, for my Lord

If I was a preacher
I tell you what I would do
I would keep on preaching
And I'd work on the building too

I'm a working on building
I'm a working on building
Hallelujah
I'm a working on building
For my Lord, for my Lord

It's a Holy Ghost building
It's a Holy Ghost building
Hallelujah
It's a Holy Ghost building
For my Lord, for my Lord
