The stone that was rejected is now the cornerstone.
Rejoice and sing glad praises: behold what God has done.
Let us build the new Jerusalem
With our hearts and with our hands,
For Christ is our foundation; on him all goodness stands.
A vine has sprung from Jesseâ€™s stem and we are grafted in;
The Lamb once slain now lives again and saves us from our sin.
With Christ the true foundation,
We all are living stones;
He opens wide salvationâ€™s gates and claims us as His own.
The tents of the just resound with shouts of joy and victory!
The blind now see, the deaf now hear, the leper and lame walk free;
Praise God, who saves us by his grace
And mercy, rich and pure;
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good: forever his love endures.
