Unless the Lord Shall Build the House Written by: Dwight Armstrong Tabbed By: Xaxu Tuning: Standard I take no credit for this tab. I could not find the one who made this tab, credit goes to them. Info: Key of Eb play chords as if in the key of D. Capo: 1 VERSE 1 G A7 D A7 D Un-less the Lord shall build the house, The wear-y build-ers toil in vain, D7 G D A D Un-less the Lord the cit-y shields, The guards main-tain a use-less watch. A A7 D A A7 D In vain you rise ere morn-ing break. And late your night-ly vig-ils keep, D7 G D A7 D And bread of anx-ious care par-take, God gives to His be-lov-ed sleep. VERSE 2 G A7 D A7 D Lo, chil-dren are the gift of God, And sons the bless-ing He com-mands, A A7 D A A7 D These whom in youth-ful days be-stowed, Are like the shafts in war-riorís hands, A A7 D A A7 D And hap-py they whose quiv-ers bear, Full store of ar-rows such as these, D7 G D A7 D They in the gate are free from fear, And bold-ly face their en-e-mies. VERSE 3 G A7 D A7 D That man is blest who fears the Lord, Who lives and walks in all His ways A A7 D A A7 D For of his la-bor shall he eat, And he shall pros-per all his days. A A7 D A A7 D His wife shall be a fruit-ful vine, His chil-dren all like ol-ive plants. D7 G D A7 D Be-hold the man who fears the Lord, To him His blessing will af-ford.
