Sonnet: My ‘temple’ On Earth - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

The pillars of my strength are three for now!
Thou art the rock on which my temple stands!
To all Thy tenets, humbly do I bow;
The construction will be with my own hands.

Let prayers make my mind draw plans with ease;
Let grace of God reinforce every brick;
Let God’s mercy help me construct in peace;
Let fear of God make my heart never sick.

The temple is my family on earth!
Outlive it must, the fury of devils;
O God, Thy blessings must not be a dearth;
Let impervious be temple to evils!

When temple’s made, thine humble servant, I
Whole-heartedly wish to Thee glorify.
