Representative Text

1 O Jesus, our chief Corner-Stone,
On Thee we rest, on Thee alone!
The Rock of Ages, thou; and we,
As living stones, are built on Thee.

2 In the beginning, Thou was God;
The heav’ns, by Thee, were spread abroad;
By Thee, was earth’s foundation laid;
Thy pow’r upholds whate’er was made.

3 We bless Thee, O Immanuel!
Who dost in our own likeness dwell;
Thy human nature, temple true,
Wherein the Father’s face we view.

4 On hearts in faith confessing thee,
The Christ, the son of God, to be,
The living Church, Thou dost maintain,
And gates of death resist in vain.

5 O Lord, accept our off’ring free,
And may this house be rear’d for Thee;
On Thee we build, on Thee alone,
O Jesus, Thou our Corner-Stone.
