1In humble adoration,
We lift our souls to Thee,
O Christ the Rock of Ages,
With us Thy servants be;
In this and all our labors,
Our efforts deign to bless;
Vouchsafe this work to prosper,
And crown it with success.
2Thou art the sure Foundation,
The precious Cornerstone;
On Grace Divine depending,
We rest on Thee alone.
Though winds and floods be raging,
As in the stormy sea,
Our House shall stand securely
Sustained and built on Thee.
3O grant us to be built up,
As stones set in their place,
Part of Thy Church’s fabric,
Cemented by Thy Grace;
That when this earthly dwelling
Shall crumble to the ground,
Our Heavenly habitation
May then for aye be found.
4To Thee, O King eternal,
Immortal Son, to Thee;
And Thee, O blessèd Spirit,
All praise ascribèd be
By us and all Thy people,
In all their works begun,
Continuing, and ended,
Whilst ages yet shall run. Amen.
Isaiah28:16Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
