歌詞

Verse 1
On this stone now laid with prayer.
Let Thy church rise, strong and fair;
Ever, Lord, Thy Name be known,
Where we laid this corner stone.

Verse 2
Let Thy holy Child, Who came,
Man from error to reclaim,
And for sinners to atone,
Bless, with Thee, this cornerstone.

Verse 3
May Thy Spirit here give rest,
to the heart by sin oppressed.
And the seeds of truth be sown,
where we lay this corner stone.

Verse 4
Open wide, O God, Thy door,
for the outcast and the poor;
May they know this house their own,
where we lay this corner stone.

Verse 5
By wise master builders squared,
here be living stone prepared.
For the temple near Thy throne,
Jesus Christ its Corner Stone.
