Building Blocks

Tune: Sandys

('Teach me, my God and King')

Ephesians 2 v.19-22


You are no more strangers

Nor be you foreigners

To God's plan of salvation, He

To you has revealed, see


But fellow-citizens

With children, women, men

You be now with God's family

Saints in His household be


And built on foundation

Included now, each one

Founded on apostles, prophets

And chief corner-stone set


Jesus Christ Himself be

This stone is, we agree

In Him the whole building well-framed

Where He is honoured, named


It all grows together

To holy temple where

Each one is bring built, close-knit

God dwells through His Spirit

        your title makes me think of what i could build.

        • orchidee

          Thanks Teddy. Yet I didn't put a picture of a church building as the header, as it's people that are being 'built' into a 'spiritual' temple, as it were. Erm, but they need an actual building to meet in too!
          You got the Lego out?

            Love that last line Orchi - God surely dwells and contacts through Spirit.

                Wonderful! I really had to read this with a natural flow of wording. I enjoyed it very much.
