Christ Is Our Cornerstone Lyrics
1 Christ is our cornerstone,
on him alone we build;
with his true saints alone
the courts of heaven are filled.
On his great love our hopes we place
of present grace and joys above.
2 Here may we gain from heaven
the grace which we implore,
and may that grace, once given,
be with us evermore
until that day when all the blest
to endless rest are called away.
3 Oh, then, with hymns of praise
these hallowed courts shall ring;
our voices we will raise
the Three in One to sing
and thus proclaim in joyful song,
both loud and long, that glorious name.
