Psalm 118 part 3

by
 v.
22,23 C.
M.
Christ the foundation of his church.
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, And 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 thy own work, almighty God, And wondrous in our eyes.
