What Makes A Church
Itís not the building great and grand
Inlaid with costly tile,
Itís not the bricks or stone or sand
That makes a church worthwhile.
Itís not the polished hardwood floors
Or sculptured water front,
Itís not the art glass in the door
Or tinted walls that count.
Itís not the sermons that you preach
Or songs that you may sing,
Itís not the lessons that you teach
Or bells that you may ring.
Itís not the customs you observe
When praising God above,
It only matters that you serve
With hearts that beat with love.
Itís not the going once each week
For blessings that you need,
For youíll be blessed if you will seek
To do some kindly deed.
Itís not the pews of ash or birch,
Itís not the way you give,
Itís not these things that make a church,
Itís just the way you live.
Rev. W. P. Harmon
