Harmony in the House

"We will not forsake the house of our God" (Nehemiah 10:39).  "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever" (Psalm 23:6).  "Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: and by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches" (Proverbs 24:3,4).  "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand" (Matthew 12:25). 

God's house, comprised of all His own,
Will grow by harmony within,
Not measured by its wood and stone,
But people Christ has saved from sin. 

The house of God shall stand forever
That Christ is building in this life,
So may now we with Him endeavor
To guard against unholy strife. 

Through wisdom, therefore, let us build
The house of God to give Him pleasure,
And let His temple thus be filled
With truth from Scripture's pleasant treasure. 

O Lord, how pleasant and how good
When brethren dwell in unity!
When we have loved You as we should,
Your house shall stand in harmony.
