Hymn/Song Information

On this stone now laid with prayer Let Thy church




On this stone now laid with prayer,
Let Thy church rise, strong and fair;
Ever, Lord, Thy Name be known,
Where we lay this cornerstone.


Let Thy holy Child, Who came
Man from error to reclaim,
And for sinners to atone,
Bless, with Thee, this cornerstone.


May Thy Spirit here give rest
To the heart by sin oppressed,
And the seeds of truth be sown,
Where we lay this cornerstone.


Open wide, O God, Thy door,
For the outcast and the poor,
Who can call no house their own,
Where we lay this cornerstone.


By wise master builders squared,
Here be living stones prepared
For the temple near Thy throne,
Jesus Christ its Cornerstone.
