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.
