As our man of God,
You came to us – suddenly
To take up the reins
And begin a task – dedicatedly.

Old tears were mended
And holes were patched – gradually.
You strengthened the canvas
Around the repairs – painstakingly.

Then we slowly perceived
A new vision evolving – steadily

A creative concept
Touched us all – individually

Now a new chapel is rising
Replacing the old – excitingly!

And later you’ll move on
Obeying God’s call – courageously

Having shown us the way
To follow the Lord – with love
Faithfully, Patiently
Commit your way to the Lord; trust
in Him Psalm 37:5
