    Verse 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.

    Verse 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.

    Verse 3
    Here, gracious God, do Thou
    For evermore draw nigh;
    Accept each faithful vow,
    And mark each suppliant sigh;

    In copious shower
    On all who pray,
    Each holy day
    Thy blessings pour.

    Verse 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.
