We who know the Lord is gracious

We who know the Lord is gracious
have in Christ a cornerstone;
sent from God, elect and precious,
laid that we may build thereon.
Let us on this sure foundation,
now, a living temple raise:
towers that tell out Christ’s salvation,
walls that echo with his praise.

2.   Living stones, by God appointed;
each in our God-given place.
Kings and priests, by God anointed;
Lord, we shall declare your grace!
We are now your holy nation,
saved in Christ and given birth;
we await your new creation
of our old and fallen earth.

3.   Sing the praise of him who saved us
from that dark, eternal night;
Conquered sin that had enslaved us,
gave us freedom, peace and sight.
Tell the world of sins forgiven,
strength renewed and hope restored,
till the earth, in tune with heaven,
sings the praises of our Lord.
