I Am A Temple

I am building a temple,
But it is not made of stones;
I am building a temple Lord,
So your glory can be shown.

I am building a temple,
So you can live within me;
My life is an offering,
So I am giving you the best of me.

You are my rock;
The foundation of my building,
Every step I take;
Let your will be, the air I am breathing.

You are the architect,
Every detail is so perfect;
When I am going wrong,
Teach me to be humble and strong.

Your word says, that your strength,
Is perfected in my weakness;
And your blood,
Gives me access to your forgiveness.

So, I am building a temple,
That continues to improve each day;
Every day that passes by,
I will seek your face and pray.

I am building a temple;
Just for you, Oh my Lord,
A place to call your home;
A living sacrifice, to you, My God.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
