LIVING STONE




Come, happy souls, who know the Lord
Who love and trust his sacred word ;
With songs of praise address his throne,
And Jesus sing, the living stone.


Chosen of God, and precious too
Is he, in each believer's view;
Built upon him, and 'stablish'd here,
They all as living stones appear.


Here the great builder, God, will raise
A house, a temple, for his praise;
Here gospel sacrifices claim
Acceptance, through the Saviour's name.


View the vast building....sec it rise;
The work how strong, the plan how wise!
Beauty and grandeur all divine,
Throughout the whole resplendent shine.


Where'er I cast my eyes abroad,
I see the labours of a God;
And through the whole there's not a stone
But cost the builder's heart a groan.


Soon shall the top-stone forth be brought,
To crown the work his love has wrought;
And to the praise of sov'reign grace,
Shall loud hosannas fill the place.


Jesus, I fly alone to thee ;
A living stone O may I be,
With which thou wilt this building raise,
A glorious structure to thy praise.
