Declaration vs Constitution?

Declaration vs Constitution?:

The Declaration of Independence (1776) and the Constitution (ratified 1789) are the founding documents of the American Republic, regarded as secular “holy writ.”

Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration; whereas, the Constitution took months of work by an entire convention chaired by George Washington................
