Seldom do we hear of a family that gathers
where peace, joy and love are lived by its members
whose light beacons the streets; inspiration it shares
gathered to pray in humility for the familys' cares.
Why is the wall severely destroyed
this spirit of the builder so annoyed?
So, Nehemiah torn upon the woeful sight
in such agony prayed once upon a bleak, cold night.
Oh that my family would stay together
quarreling members turn into loving each other
bitterness not a stronghold; no hate to remember
God of Order from thy farthest abode hear.
May wealth and dreams we let go
For one supreme ambition may we cling to
May we live each moment for the sake of the home
Godliness with contentment be the theme and song.
Nehemiah arise out of your agony
For the Living God hears Your plea
The walls He'll restore if His people humbles.
So, build this house Oh Lord before we'll build it into shambles.
