Weaving the Covenant 

Square the frame, thread the loom. 
Draw straight and bowstring-taut the cords.
With harness and heddle
pattern the covenant cloth.
Throw color-threaded shuttle,
straight as an arrow, swift as pure thought,
to fill the sovereign space.
Enlarge fabric of stake-stretched tent.
Increase the temple-tall poles.
With reed press tight rich patterns of light.
Extend and bind borders with gold.
Prepare royal robes, spread canopied veil.
Dress Earth to embrace the Lord!
