Christ is our cornerstone; On him alone we build.
With his true saints alone The courts of heav'n are filled.
On his great love Our hopes we place
Of present grace And joys above.

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.

Here, gracious God, do now And evermore draw near;
Accept each faithful vow And all your children hear,
And more and more On those who pray
Each holy day Your blessing pour.

Here may we gain from heav'n The grace which we implore,
And may that grace, once giv'n, Be with us evermore
Until that day When all the blest
To endless rest Are called away!
