Statement of Faith

This house is slowly decaying,
The timbers are getting weak;
The paint is beginning to peel
And the floors are starting to creak.

This house is falling apart,
It's getting drafty and cold;
This house no longer delights me,
Now that it's getting old.

But it stands on a firm foundation,
That has stood the test of time;
For this house was built on Christ,
So its cornerstone is fine.

One day this house will be rebuilt
Up above, on a heavenly plot,
But it will stand on the same foundation,
Grounded on the Son of God.

1997 J M McIntosh

For no other foundation can anyone lay than 
that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
(I Corinthians 3:11)
