Jaws like teeth as it smashes and shakes
A building hammered to the ground, the progress it makes
Shoveled into a truck the rubble and grind
Only a memory that is left behind.
Earth movers hit hard, mighty machines of steel
Hydraulic lifts and turntable to wheel
All the technology to tear down a place
Think of the hope, new life we can face.
An earthen vessel as vulnerable as I
Subjected to sin, circumstances make me cry.
To be rebuilt, after we’re broken and torn;
A spiritual house, living stones are reborn.
A living hope and gloriously appearing
To be in Christ, this world is deceiving.
Rebuilt, a new, living stones I dare say
Being torn down though sin and decay
Born again, not of corruption and lies
It’s the spirit within, Christ’s workmanship thrives.
That is the Message, believe and repent
For the Love of the World Jesus was sent.
