15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly. 16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly. 17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. 18 The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.

     19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD: 20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter. 21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation. 22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. 23 This is the LORD’S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes. 24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. 25 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity. 26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD. 27 God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar. 28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee. 29 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.(KJV)

1. Behold the sure Foundation-stone 
Which God in Zion lays 
To build our heavenly hopes upon 
And His eternal praise. 

2. Chosen of God, to sinners dear, 
Let saints adore the name; 
They trust their whole salvation here, 
Nor shall they suffer shame. 

3. The foolish builders, scribe and priest, 
Reject it with disdain; 
Yet on this rock the Church shall rest 
And envy rage in vain. 

4. What though the gates of hell withstood 
Yet must this building rise. 
‘Tis Thine own work, Almighty God, 
And wondrous in our eyes.
