Petra – Shakin The House lyrics

Words by Bob Hartman and John Lawry
Based on 1 Peter 4: 17, Hebrews 12: 27

There's a rumble in the distance - a trembling in the air
It's uncertain in direction - does it come from here or there
It's approaching by the minute - does it lead you to despair
Feel it shakin your foundation - when you haven't got a prayer

[Chorus:]
Everything that can be shaken will be shakin' from within
Better have your house in order when the shaking begins
Shakin' the house
Shakin, shakin' the house

You examine your foundation - does it stand on rock or sand
When the smoke clears, does it bring fears - when the houses fall or stand
In the fire of refining - with the flames too high to douse
You remember someone saying it's beginning in the house

But don't fear when it comes near
And you see the raging fire
If you hold fast it will all pass
Till your heart has His desire
