1 When Elements and Time will fade,
(What wisest Architects have made)
Mould'ring to whence it came;
God's Building ever shall endure,
In all Things order'd well and sure,
Christ always is the same.
2 When we the inside Work survey,
What Grandeur does the whole display!
How glorious ev'ry part!
Earth's Beauties all are far too mean
To point out what's in Jesus seen,
When he attracts the Heart.
3 Foundation, Christ, and Head-stone too,
The Alpha and Omega thou,
Of this, the House of God:
A lively Stone, on thee I'm built,
And wash'd from all my dreadful Guilt,
In thine atoning Blood.
