Exchanged Life Spirituality

This says it all; a classic tune recorded by the Jordanaires,

Elvis Presley’s backup singers, Bill Monroe, The Carter Family, BB King, and many, many more. This song describes the wonderful process we experience as we take the teachings of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount and apply them to our lives. There are many versions—all are great, but the important thing is to apply these wonderful lyrics to our lives.

I'm a working on building
I'm a working on building
I'm a working on building
For my Lord, for my Lord


It's a holy ghost building
It's a holy ghost building
It's a holy ghost building
For my Lord, for my Lord


If I was a gambler, I tell you what I'd do
I'd quit my gambling and I'd work on the building, too


I'm a working on building
I'm a working on building
For my Lord, for my Lord


It's a holy ghost building
It's a holy ghost building
It's a holy ghost building
For my Lord, for my Lord


If I was a drunkard I tell you what I would do
I'd quit my drinking and I'd work on the building too


I'm a working on building
I'm a working on building
For my Lord, for my Lord


It's a holy ghost building
It's a holy ghost building
It's a holy ghost building
For my Lord, for my Lord


If I was a preacher I tell you what I would do
I would keep on preaching and work on the building too


I'm a working on building
I'm a working on building
For my Lord, for my Lord


It's a holy ghost building
It's a holy ghost building
It's a holy ghost building
For my Lord, for my Lord
