Sonnet: My ‘temple’ On Earth

The pillars of my strength are three for now!
Thou art the rock on which my temple stands!
To all Thy tenets, humbly do I bow;
The construction will be with my own hands.

Let prayers make my mind draw plans with ease;
Let grace of God reinforce every brick;
Let God’s mercy help me construct in peace;
Let fear of God make my heart never sick.

The temple is my family on earth!
Outlive it must, the fury of devils;
O God, Thy blessings must not be a dearth;
Let impervious be temple to evils!

When temple’s made, thine humble servant, I
Whole-heartedly wish to Thee glorify.

by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
