God the architect

Humans are the labourers;
God is the architect;
Let us allow Him
To build the mansion
As he conceives it;
The structure of His dream;
Not our dream;
The skyscraper He wants;
Not the kind we want;
What powers do we have
To produce anything
On our own?
God alone
Is the determinant;
But He works through us;
And we could be tempted
To think
We are the architects
Of our lives and the world;
We, surely, are not.
