Construct the foundation carefully

build on rock in order to stand

thoroughly grounded in God’s promises

build tall, but with precision

works measured precisely as stones

mortared securely with belief

carve the ornaments with exquisite craftsmanship

shiny conduct for all to see


That’s only half the work

don’t forget inside

construct the altar on faith

vestments and utensils of purest love

carve the seats from hope

beautify the interior so it shines

through the stained glass windows

to light all around


Build your cathedral

with your body

with your life

with your soul

You are the offering, the shrine

Give yourself back to God
