#288 All Are Architects – Vespers Closing Hymn
All are architects of fate,
working in these walls of time;
some with massive deeds and great,
some with ornaments of rhyme.
For the structure that we raise
time is with materials filled;
our todays and yesterdays
are the blocks with which we build.
Build today, then, strong and sure,
with a firm and ample base;
and ascending and secure
shall tomorrow find its place.
