Surely some workman has built
the pillar as well as the spire
The cross that the painter has gilded
was fashioned in somebody's fire.
Surely men dig in the ditches
preparing a place for the wall
And someone has made with her
stitches the flag that shall fly over all.
Someone has blended the plaster,
and someone has carried the stone
Neither the man nor the Master
ever has built alone.
Making a roof for the weather,
building a house for the King
Only by working together
men have accomplished a thing.
All have a share in the beauty,
all have a part in the plan
What does it matter what duty
falls to the lot of a man.
Each has a hand in the building,
no one has built alone
Whether a cross he was gilding,
whether he carried the stone.

“I just wanted to let you know I received the ring this afternoon and it is perfect. I am very impressed with the quality - it is exactly what I was hoping for, and better. It was worth the long wait.”
