When he heard the word “Look on us”
What did the lame man see? Two
Pillars before the temple, Jachin and Boaz.

A man, founded on the fact and joy
Of the love of Jesus: “He will establish”.

A man, weakened in his nature’s vigour,
Founded in this knowledge: “In Him is strength”.

So that if given power in the Name
Of Jesus Christ the Nazaraean, he still
Clung to that Lord’s conspicuous pillars here.

"And he set up the pillars for the porch of the temple; and he set up the right pillar, and called its name Jachin; and he set up the left pillar, and called its name Boaz." 1 Kings 7: 21

  1. David,

    I love this poem. We can't call on the name of Jesus unless we tend to be married to Him and say I do!
