Christ in Solomon’s Temple

Christ in Solomon’s Temple

By David Smith November 12, 2008


Trees cut down, to the river they float.

Then taken up, chosen timber to promote.

Trees from Lebanon so rugged and rough;

Hewn down and planed like personalities to buff.

Humbled and rebuilt, His Workmanship we become

Solomon’s Temple, a shadow of the Righteous One.

In three days he would rise; Christ on the Cross;

The Temple within, the incarnate word comes across

We are his workmanship on a spiritual plain

The building of God’s temple; the picture is the same

We are his workmanship as he changes our will

He did it all. To obey is the thrill.

The temple, the shadow, of perfection to come

A picture of Christ, the Blessed one.
