THE MAN CHRIST, by                    
First Line: He built no temple, yet the farthest sea
Last Line: The kingdom of the truth.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ - Life & Ministry; Religion; Theology

He built no temple, yet the farthest sea
Can yield no shore that's barren of His place
For bended knee.

He wrote no book, and yet His words and prayer
Are intimate on many myriad tongues,
Are counsel everywhere.

The life He lived has never been assailed,
Nor any precept, as He lived it, yet
Has ever failed.

He built no kingdom, yet a King from youth
He reigned, is reigning yet; they call His realm
The kingdom of the Truth.
