19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.(KJV)

1. Christ is our Corner-stone, 
On Him alone we build; 
With His true saints alone 
The courts of heaven are filled. 
On His great love 
Our hopes we place 
Of present grace 
And joys above. 

2. Oh, then, with hymns of praise 
These hallowed courts shall ring; 
Our voices we will raise 
The three in One to sing 
And thus proclaim 
In joyful song, 
Both loud and long. 
That glorious name. 

3. Here, gracious God, do Thou 
Forevermore draw nigh; 
Accept each faithful vow 
And mark each suppliant sigh. 
In copious shower 
On all who pray 
Each holy day, 
Thy blessing pour. 

4. Here may we gain from heaven 
The grace which we implore, 
And may that grace, once given, 
Be with us evermore 
Until that day 
When all the blest 
To endless rest 
Are called away!
