Shake this house, shake this house

 

                                                                C7

Let the power of the Holy Ghost come down

 

       Eb                       Eb/F

We need a great outpouring

 

Bb                           G7

Shower down your glory

 

Cm7         Dm7  Ebm7 Dm7 Cm7   F7   Bb

Come oh Holy Spir  -  it   shake this house

 

 

Verse I:

 

        Bbm                  Bbm/Ab

The disciples of the Lord

 

          Bbm/Gb

Were all in one accord

 

        Gb/Eb                                    Bbm

And praise is what they came to do (itís what they came to do)

 

            Bbm            Bbm/Ab

And it wasnít very long

 

             Bbm/Gb

ĎTil the power was so strong

 

        Gb/Eb                   Db/Eb    F2

The air was filled with His perfume

 

              F/D                        Bb/G

But the walls could not contain

 

        F/D                 Bb/G

The power of their praise

 

                 Eb/C                                   F4                 F

When the presence of the Holy One filled up the room

 

 

Verse II:

 

           Bbm                 Bbm/Ab

Apprehended on the street

 

          Bbm/Gb

They bound their hands and feet

 

         Gb/Eb                               Bbm

And threw them on the prison floor (they threw them on the floor)

 

              Bbm                      Bbm/Ab

But the one thing they forgot

 

         Bbm/Gb

That praise cannot be stopped

 

      Gb/Eb             Db/Eb                 F2

As Paul and Silas worshipped the Lord

 

              F/D                Bb/G

In them middle of the night

 

         F/D                     Bb/G

That jailhouse came alive

 

            Eb/C                                    F4                F

As the shaking of the Holy Ghost opened the doors

 

 

Verse III:

 

    Bbm            Bbm/Ab

If only two or three

 

     Bbm/Gb

Together would agree

 

         Gb/Eb                                 Bbm

That we are here to praise His name (praise His name)

 

              Bbm               Bbm/Ab

We can have the confidence

 

         Bbm/Gb

That He is in our midst

 

        Gb/Eb               Db/Eb   F2

And every promise we can claim

 

      F/D                   Bb/G

So shout the battle cry

 

       F/D                 Bb/G

Lift holy hands up high

 

               Eb/C                                     F4              F

And the gates of hell will not prevail inside this place
