May the whole structure be one of the treasures opened by wise men for the incarnate Christ. May every passer-by hear echoing from its walls the angelic song, Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy.
May this temple have for its cornerstone Christ in theology, Christ in worship, Christ in work, Christ in characterfour-sided, square, and perfect. May there not be one square foot of standing-room for the preacher who takes one verse from the Bible or one star from the brow of the Christ. May form and superstition and idolatry be banished from its worship, and lines never be drawn between the worshipers. Over every one of its nine entrances let the chisel cut that large gospel word, Whosoever.
