Tune: Stuttgart

('Earth has many a noble city')

Luke 20 v.17-18


The stone the builders rejected

Has become main stone, the head

Of the corner, firm foundation

To those called from each nation


'Tis the same stone, Christ that stone be

Whosoe'er upon it, see

Shall be broken, humble, made low

That his grace power they may know


But on whosoe'er it shall fall

It shall sure destroy them all

Shall grind them to powder, shattered

For they that stone rejected


So may we build our lives upon

Jeus Christ, He God's own Son

Becominga living temple

Each one for His glory all


And thus shall we be in ourplace

Of whatever culture, race

Better to fall on that stone, so

Brokenness, not crushing know
