The Temple

Standing before the crumbling temple,
I looked up, and gaped, in awe
At the empty, aching loneliness
Of the desolation....that I saw.

The place was parched and barren
And a dry wind just blew right through
All of the broken, shattered windows.

So I looked around for You.

Yet, You were nowhere to be found.
You were nowhere that I could see.

And as I stood and stared at that temple...
I realized...that temple....was me.

Abandoned, neglected, filthy,
My temple was a wreck.
Full of pain and sorrow,
With a yoke of sins around my neck.

I cried out, "My dear God! My Father! Save me!
Please, please, come into this place!

And as I turned back to see the temple,
I looked up to see Your face.

You took the time to clean my temple,
Knocked down the cobwebs that I had spun...
As you repaired the broken doors and windows,

The loving breath of the Holy Spirit begun

To blow through the hidden chambers,
Hidden way beneath my heart,
And the temple rooms began to teem with life,
You gave me a brand new start.
