On Christ, salvation rests secure;

The Rock of Ages must endure;

Nor can that faith be overthrown

Which rest 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 His saints, who own

No Savior but the "Living Stone."


View the vast building, see it rise:

The work how great! The plan how wise!

O wondrous fabric! Pow'r unknown:

That rests it on the "Living Stone."


But most adore His precious name:

His glory and His grace proclaim!

For us, the lost, condemned, undone,

He gave Himself, the "Living Stone."
