Christ is our Cornerstone,
on Him alone we build;
with his true saints alone
the courts of heav’n are filled:
On His great love
our hopes we place
of present grace
and joys above.

O then with hymns of praise
these hallowed courts shall ring;
our voices we will raise
the Three in One to sing;
And thus proclaim
in joyful song,
both loud and long,
that glorious Name.

Here, gracious God, do Thou
for evermore draw nigh;
Accept each faithful vow,
and mark each suppliant sigh;
In copious show’r
on all who pray
each holy day
Thy blessings pour.

Here may we gain from heav’n
the grace which we implore;
And may that grace, once giv’n,
be with us evermore,
Until that day
when all the blest
to endless rest
are called away.

Latin, 7th cent. tr. J. Chandler (1837)
