Solomon received a gift from above.
What gift would you like to have a lot of?
Perhaps it might be to build up others;
And encourage your sisters and brothers.
God made us by design
And we are fed by the True Vine.
To help others grow,
And make sure it is the Good News we sow.
Discovering our individual skills;
Not only pays the bills;
But brings us together;
To make us better;
By constructing communities of inspiration
And to build up a nation.
A picture like a thousand expressions
Focuses our thoughts from many impressions;
And the direction becomes clear;
As we step ahead with cheer.
