Original Key: D


Verse 1:
Bm7                             G2
All I have and all I am is Yours;
        Bm7             A/C♯      D
There's nothing that I have on earth 
       Em7                G
That doesn't come from You.
  Bm7                                 G2
I lay aside my pride and worldly worth;
   Bm7                  A/C♯      D
To serve You is the greatest thing 
      Em7             G
That I could ever do.
Chorus:
       D
For unless You build this house, 
      Em7
I am building it in vain.
   A/C♯
Unless the work is Yours, 
         Dsus4    D
There is nothing to be gained.
A/C♯    Bm7                     B/D♯
I want something that will stand 
          Em7           G/D
When Your holy fire comes;
A/C♯ 
Something that will last, 
         Dsus4    D
And to hear You say 'well done', 
A/C♯    Bm                G
Giving glory to You, Lord, 
Em7                G2  A2  D
Glory to You, Lord.
Verse 2: 
So easy to desire what others have, 
Instead of seeing all the gifts 
That You have given me. 
So help me fan the flame which You began, 
And burn in me a love for You 
That all will clearly see. 
    

ALL I HAVE AND ALL I AM is Yours
There's nothing that I have on earth that doesn't come from You
I lay aside my pride and worldly worth
To serve You is the greatest thing that I could ever do.

For unless You build this house
I am building it in vain
Unless the work is Yours
There is nothing to be gained
I want something that will stand
When Your Holy fire comes
Something that will last
And to hear You say "Well done"
Giving Glory to You Lord
Glory to You Lord

So easy to desire what others have
Instead of seeing all the gifts that You have given me
So help me fan the flame which You began
And burn in me a love for You that all will clearly see
