Does It Yet Stir?

You sow much, but reap little.
You eat much, but are not full.
You drink much, but still thirst.
You clothe much, but are not warm.
You earn much, but put your money
     into bags with many holes.

How is this so?
Consider your ways!

Welcome My presence
     back into your lives.
Embrace My presence
     with both arms.
Fear My presence
     like never before.

Does your spirit stir within?
Does it yet stir for Me?

Raise My temple walls.
Build beautiful its many halls.
For to this glorious task
     your Lord God calls,
Not to bring glory to thee,
     but to glorify Me.
