11069. Lo! What a Glorious Corner-Stone

1 Lo! what a glorious corner-stone
The Jewish builders did refuse;
But God hath built His Church thereon,
In spite of envy and the Jews.

2 Great God, the work is all divine,
The joy and wonder of our eyes;
This is the day that proves it Thine,
The day that saw our Savior rise.

3 Sinners, rejoice; and saints, be glad;
Hosanna, let His name be blessed;
A thousand honors on His head,
With peace, and light, and glory rest!

4 In God’s own name He comes to bring
Salvation to our dying race;
Let the whole Church address their king
With hearts of joy and songs of praise.
