The tower of Babel

Outweighed the monuments of man,

By one ascendant flower-spire,

While all the nations’ labor builds

Heap upon heap, fuel for the fire.

Beyond the mightiest palace mount

Shall stand a people, stars aflame

Within Thy heart, as living stones,

Each built a temple for Thy name.

Now choose us for Thy temple, Lord;

Unite our hearts in fear of Thee.

In lowliness, we bow, adore;

Alone Thy name shall matchless be.
