Built on the rock of Christ and Christ alone,
sound and unshaken through the tides of change,
our forebears carved a house of living stone,
with faith that strengthens through the years.
Warmed by the Light that pierces through the gloom,
sparkling with colors in a radiant stream,
we glimpse our Lord Who rises from the tomb,
with hope that calms and conquers fears.
Bathed in the font of God's renewing grace,
blessed with forgiveness and with gifts to share,
our arms extend our Savior's wide embrace,
with love that sings, through joys and tears,
Praise be to God, creation's Source and End
praise be to Christ, our Way, our Truth, our Life;
and praised be Spirit, live and rushing Wind:
the One Who even now appears!
