A Little About This Song…

I’m Working on a Building is a southern gospel standard from around 1900, but no official writing credits can be found. It has been recorded many times with many different arrangements. It’s popular at folk, bluegrass and traditional gospel singalongs. Bluegrass singers will often stretch out a single word across several measures (the “If I…” at the beginning of each verse).

A Related Bible Verse…

1 Corinthians 3:9

For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
