    A Builder Or a Wrecker
    As I watched them tear a building down
    A gang of men in a busy town
    With a ho-heave-ho, and a lusty yell
    They swung a beam and the side wall fell

    I asked the foreman, "Are these men skilled,
    And the men you'd hire if you wanted to build?"
    He gave a laugh and said, "No, indeed,
    Just common labor is all I need."

    "I can easily wreck in a day or two,
    What builders have taken years to do."
    And I thought to myself, as I went my way
    Which of these roles have I tried to play?

    Am I a builder who works with care,
    Measuring life by rule and square?
    Am I shaping my work to a well-made plan
    Patiently doing the best I can?

    Or am I a wrecker who walks to town
    Content with the labor of tearing down?
    "O Lord let my life and my labors be
    That which will build for eternity!"
