I built a sturdy castle

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Who is the Rock, except our God?
Psalm 18:31
 
  I built a sturdy castle  
  Smoothed it firm with skilful hand,  
  Each gate and moat and battlement  
  With cunning tactic planned,  
  Then from the top a challenge flew  
  Across the shining sand.  
   
  The sea rolled softly to my gate-  
  It didn't pause to knock  
  But whispered  
  " Child, these grains are mine-  
  Go find a safer Rock,  
  A fortress built by wiser hands  
  A faith with stronger lock."
