Unless the Lord is the builder and designer of the plan,
it will be burned and you will suffer loss.
Build on the Foundation, on the Rock, not on the Sand,
Before you start, be sure to count the cost.
And yet to build little kingdoms is the tendency of man,
Oh, Spirit come and burn away the dross.
All the builders and the planners who were never sent yet ran,
Must leave their little kingdoms at the cross.
You know the pattern in the Scripture is the one you need to use.
The Spirit will reveal the holy way.
All the man-made ways are failing, and you know that you must choose,
to listen to the Spirit and obey.
Rejecting the word, they reason and plan
With forms and programs they design.
Building a house in the weakness of man,
And following the patterns of their mind.
If man designs it, it will never stand,
So listen to the Spirit of the Son.
The Lord is the builder, and He has the plan.
And He will finish what He has begun.
