232. You Who Know the Lord Is Gracious

1 You who know the Lord is gracious,
you for whom a cornerstone
stands of God elect and precious,
laid that you may build thereon,
see that on that sure foundation
you a living temple raise,
towers that may tell forth salvation,
walls that may re-echo praise.

2 Living stones by God appointed
each to an allotted place,
kings and priests, by God anointed,
shall you not declare his grace?
You, a royal generation,
tell the tidings of your birth,
tidings of a new creation
to an old and weary earth.

3 Tell the praise of him who called you
out of darkness into light,
broke the fetters that enthralled you,
gave you freedom, peace, and sight;
tell a tale of sins forgiven,
strength renewed, and hope restored,
till the earth, in tune with heaven,
praise and magnify the Lord.
