A Hymn for Busy Times

Winter church

Make Me A Temple, Lord

©Mollie Pearce McKibbon

Busy the market place,

The people crowded in;

Money was changing hands

Within the temple din,

When suddenly, anger divine

Cut through the clamour in God’s shrine.

                   ************

Jesus, the Son of God,

Called out in the great dismay.

“My Father’s Holy house

Must not be used this way!”

He strode between the seller’s wares

O’er-turning tables everywhere.

                       **************

O Jesus, cleanse my heart;

Make me holy within,

For I am full of pain

And weary fighting sin.

But You, O Lord, can me renew

So I can truly follow You.

                 ***********

Make me a temple, Lord.

Direct my thoughts above.

O purify my soul

And fill me full of love.

For You have promised me a place

In heaven if I seek your grace.
