1 There is nothing that can hinder any task we have in hand,
If we labor in the name of the Lord;
And the house that we are building will become a temple grand,
If we labor in the name of the Lord.

Refrain:
If we labor in the name off the Lord,
If we labor in the name of the Lord,
At the setting of the sun,
He will say to us: “well done,”
If we labor in the name of the Lord.

2 With the Rock as tis foundation, waters cannot overflow,
If we labor in the name of the Lord;
And no storm that may betide it shall the temple overthrow,
If we labor in the name of the Lord. [Refrain]

3 ‘Twill become the habitation of His spirit, love, and grace,
If we labor in the name of the Lord
And from beating rain and tempest it will be a hiding place,
If we labor in the name of the Lord.
