Lind: Spiritual song co-written by radio show host rings true
Patty Sandeen, Moorhead, has found a copy of that song in a booklet of poems and songs she’s had since she was a teenager.
Here are the song’s two verses:
“I built a cathedral deep down in my heart, where God holds His counsel with me.
“And no one on this earth can visit me there, for I have the only known key.
“Ev’ry morning and night I am kneeling at my altar where love guides the way.
“And my prayers bring the help and the strength I need to carry life’s burdens each day.
“In my own cathedral I built long ago, there’s comfort the world cannot find;
“For there I’m alone with the powers that be, at peace with the world and mankind.
“Ev’ry one in the world should be building a cathedral, no matter how small,
“For our Savior is waiting to greet us there, with God’s endless love for us all.”
Truer words were never spoken – or written. Other than in the Bible, that is.
