Medley ~ Meter: L.M.
On Christ salvation rests secure;
The Rock of Ages must endure;
Nor can that faith be overthrown
Which rests upon the “Living Stone.”
No other hope shall intervene:
To Him we look, on Him we lean:
Other foundations we disown,
And build on Christ, the ” Living Stone.”
In Him, it is ordained to raise
A temple to Jehovah’s praise,
Composed of all the saints, who own
No Saviour but the “Living Stone.”
View the vast building, see it rise;
The work how great! the plan how wise!
O wondrous fabric! power unknown!
That rears it on the “Living Stone.”
But most adore His precious name;
His glory and His grace proclaim;
For us, condemned, despised, undone,
He gave Himself, the “Living Stone.”
