Our Christian Home

by Charles M Harrison

Our house and home, picture these if you will.
Think of the security and the pleasure that you feel.
There is no place that comforts like this place where we can rest,
Our tired weary bodies at the end of life’s daily test.
All families need this place of protection and of care.
This place where they can love, and with each other share.
Our Christian family is much like any other.
We also need a home to share our love of one for another.
Where we can hear words of encouragement and of love
Given to us by our heavenly father up above.
It is here that we can gather and our soul we can refill
When all of life’s worries have caused the faith in us to spill.
This is where we can find a grace and comfort that is heaven sent.
When we feel that all within us has been wasted, worn and spent.
But a Church is just a building made of wood and stone.
If it is not cared for, with time it shall be gone.
No matter how much love there is kept within its walls.
No matter how many people have wandered through its halls.
A Church needs more than just love and grace to stand.
It needs the muscle and the sweat of each members hand.
For there is no other way to promise and ensure
That the love that dwells in this place will last and endure.
It is with hope for the future that we have gathered in this place.
To lift the praises of our lord and to seek his loving grace.
To ask that he would bless this his families home.
Built of friendship, love , sweat, wood and stone.
We pray for his glory his mercy and his grace.
That the people of this country would pray and seek his face.
And to him we dedicate this Church for all to see
The glory and the majesty of the holy trinity.
