Coloured glass split light collect

Flickering lamps shadows reflect

Walls with carvings etched inlaid

These sacred spaces man has made

Stone solstice solid giants stand

Distant spires on highest land

Lift soaring mind to noble heights

Inspiring us to rapturous flights

For years on end on sacred soil

For God’s glory, workers toil

Their skills applied for no reward

Creating space to praise the Lord

Curved arches, domes, calligraphy

In timber, glass, and masonry

Leaf of gold and marble walls

Decorate pillars in temple halls

Pilgrims from far look up in awe

And gaze around to see much more

From hands and muscles, lofty dreams

Came sanctuaries under timber beams


O Lord, thank you for manifesting Your energy in so many wonderful ways. May I be content to be Your willing and uncomplaining instrument for Your glory and through this to inspire others.
