The Temple Of Jerusalem

Why Fight For Shrines ?

It was in times of Solomon

The king of golden land

Who held the truth inside his heart

And love in ruling hand.

Caressed by sun and washed by rain

On map of ancient world

Like diamond shined Jerusalem

In caring hands of God.

And Solomon sang Praise to God

Who blessed his Fatherland

Whose gentle Love is such a force

That nothing can withstand

And then he said: -This whole wide world

Just by Your Grace is run,

I want to build a Temple for You,

As beautiful as the sun!"

-"Yes, you can build it", answered God -

"But one should know well,

That in the stones I dwell not,

But in the hearts I dwell

And if you walk the rightful ways

And rule with Truth and Love , -

You are my Temple, Solomon,

And is it not enough?"

... But many days had fallen through

Like sand through open hands

And many beautiful temples were build

In our homelands

But what was build for sake of love

That now hate destroys

And people fight for temples and lands

Like children fight for toys!

What was in times of Solomon

Has long time come to end

And now Age of Truth is here

And one should understand

Why fight for shrines of older days

The world of Past is dead!

It’s time to build the Temple of God

Within our hearts instead!
