Representative Text

1 We are building day by day,
While we onward press our way,
And the thoughts that fill our heart,
Of the building, form a part.

We are building day by day,
As we onward press our way;
Building not for time are we,—
Building for eternity.

2 We are building day by day,
O direct us, Lord, we pray;
If supported by Thy hand,
Surely, then, our house shall stand. [Refrain]

3 We are building day by day,
In the loving words we say,
In the deeds of kindness done,
And the vict’ries we have won. [Refrain]
