Lyrics
Verse 1
Let us build a house where prophets speak, 
and words are strong and true, 
where all God’s children dare to seek 
to dream God’s reign anew. 
Here the cross shall stand as witness 
and as symbol of God’s grace; 
here as one we claim the faith of Jesus. 
 
Chorus
All are welcome, all are welcome, 
all are welcome in this place. 
 
Verse 2
Let us build a house where love is found 
in water, wine and wheat: 
a banquet hall on holy ground 
where peace and justice meet. 
Here the love of God, through Jesus, 
is revealed in time and space; 
as we share in Christ the feast that frees us. 
 
Chorus
All are welcome, all are welcome, 
all are welcome in this place. 
 
Verse 3
Let us build a house where hands will reach 
beyond the wood and stone 
to heal and strengthen, serve and teach, 
and live the Word they’ve known. 
Here the outcast and the stranger 
bear the image of God’s face; 
let us bring an end to fear and danger. 
 
Chorus
All are welcome, all are welcome, 
all are welcome in this place. 
 
Verse 4
Let us build a house where all are named, 
their songs and visions heard 
and loved and treasured, taught and claimed 
as words within the Word. 
Built of tears and cries and laughter, 
prayers of faith and songs of grace, 
let this house proclaim from floor to rafter. 
 
Chorus
All are welcome, all are welcome, 
all are welcome in this place.
