Cornerstone

See now - God’s precious, treasured living stone
Tossed aside by men who too blind to see
Their feet are caught, they stumble, skin the bone
They glance but never see eternity

See now – the stones He chooses for His own
His living stones that move to do His will
Assembled as a house for Him alone
With praise His holy priests His temple fill

See now – the cornerstone He puts in place
For those who cast their lives, on Him depend
They look and know forgiveness, no disgrace
And own Him, Saviour, Shepherd, Friend

See now – the stone that holds in place the world
Tossed it is, into hungry hearts it's hurled

1 Peter 2:4-8
