This Temple

This temple was broken,
A once beautiful place
But now in ruins. 
Shining glory is faded,
Unworthy of housing
The Holy of Holies. 

This temple was broken
To be made new,
So all who see
The recreated place
See the broken beauty,
And undeserved forgiveness. 

This temple was broken
So new life might
Spring from the scars. 
This temple houses hope,
And praises the One
Who eternally dwells within.
