1. Building, daily building, while the moments fly,
We are ever building life work for on high!
Character we’re building, thoughts and actions free
Make for us a building for eternity.

Refrain
We are building day by day, while the moments pass away,
We are building, ever building;
We are building day by day, while the moments pass away,
We are building for eternity.

2. Choosing, as we labor, what we wish to take,
Oh let us be careful for the Master’s sake!
He will help our labor, He will strength bestow;
Let us choose for Jesus all we use below. [Refrain]

3. Hay or wood or stubble, we must never use,
Offers of the tempter we must e’er refuse.
Sinful thoughts and actions will not stand the test;
Seeking God’s approval, we must use the best. [Refrain]

4. May the Lord approve us! ’Tis our earnest prayer.
Oh, to have our building tall, and strong and fair!
Oh, to live for Jesus! Truly every hour,
Building, praying, trusting in His mighty power! [Refrain]
