lyrics

Verse 1:
We are not proud of the things that we have done
We've built up our walls thinking that we could become our own kingdom
But God is an Empire, God is an Empire

Verse 2:
The walls have come down since that day when we found our folly,
Storing up high the things that we thought could buy our freedom
But God is an Empire, God is an Empire

Chorus:
He's building a kingdom,
He's building an empire,
He's building a kingdom,
He's building out of sinners.

Verse 3:
For now we wait here and are strangers in a land that's foreign
Hoping for the day when he'll come back down and reign in his Kingdom.
'Cause Our God is an Empire, Our God is an Empire

Bridge
Halleluiah! (ah ah ah ah ah ah)
