[Mission 2022] InstaMotivation@9pm – Building by I. E. Dickenga


We are building every day

In a good or evil way,

And the structure, as it grows,

Will our inmost self disclose,


Till in every arch and line

All our faults and failings shine;

It may grow a castle grand,

Or a wreck upon the sand.


Do you ask what building this

That can show both pain and bliss,

That can be both dark and fair?

Lo, its name is character!


Build it well, whate’er you do;

Build it straight and strong and true;

Build it clear and high and broad;

Build it for the eye of God.
