1. It was rumored that Jesus had come
To that tiny little town, Capernaum
So a sick man and some of his friends
Went to see Him, but could not get in
They said, “We’ve come too far to turn back now
“We’ve got to get this man to Jesus somehow”
Then their will became their faith and faith broke through
When one of them proclaimed, “I know what we can do”

(Chorus)
Come on, let’s raise the roof off this place
We’re gonna let the whole world know that Jesus saves
There’s a miracle awaiting, nothing’s standing in our way
Come on, let’s raise the roof off this place

2. Can’t you see that some things never change
The same thing is still happening today
We come inside the house to praise the Lord
While the sick and lost stand outside the door
Oh, but please don’t take me wrong, I love the thrill
When we get together and our cups get filled
But we must let it spill and overflow
Let’s take a little lesson from our brothers long ago

Repeat Chorus twice

(Tag)
Come on, let’s raise the roof
Come on, let’s raise the roof
Come on, let’s raise the roof off this place
