A new temple

A temple was built

For You in Jerusalem

A house for the Lord,

Made of silver and gold

Shining arches and doorways,

Glowing in precious metal and gems.

No place on earth can be worthy of You,

But surely this temple must come close?

There you dwelt, until another century,

You gave an unbelievable sacrifice – 

One that tore the holy curtain

Fully from top to bottom;

Yes, that golden temple wasn’t enough.

Instead You chose…me.
