84 (C.M.) Isaac Watts

Behold the sure Foundation-Stone

Which God in Zion lays

To build our heav'nly hopes upon,

And His eternal praise.

Chosen of God, to sinners dear,

Let saints adore the name;

They trust their whole salvation here,

Nor shall they suffer shame.

The foolish builders, scribe and priest,

Reject it with disdain;

Yet on this Rock the Church shall rest,

And envy rage in vain.

What though the gates of hell withstood,

Yet must this building rise;

'Tis Thine own work, Almighty God,

And wondrous in our eyes.
