Establishing Zion

Upon  isles of the sea,
pearls of perseverance 
gleam in patient hands.
Diamonds of devotion,
glitter in the promised land.
Service, precious as sapphires, 
sweeps across vast savannahs.
Emerald excellence
extends from rivers 
to mountaintops that ring 
with ruby-rich melodies 
of woodwinds, strings.
From ends of Earth— 
San Salvador to Sydney,
Cambridge to Cape Town—   
Saints sacrifice time, 
talents, trades, skills,
abundance to meet each need, 
treasures to build the Kingdom, 
offerings to establish Zion.
Multiplied and sanctified, 
they fill the common coffer 
of consecration.
For the administration of this service not only 
supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant 
also by many thanksgivings unto God.  (2 Cor. 9:12)
