Better Builders

"The Stone which the builders refused is become the Head Stone of the corner. This is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes" (Psalm 118:22,23). "Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established.... Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house" (Proverbs 24:3,27).

There is a better way to build
Upon a Sure Foundation,
Since God instructs as He has willed,
To grant us His salvation.

The builders of this world refused
Our Lord, to their destruction.
We dare not follow their confused,
Unthinking, blind instruction!

We see the plan of God so wise
That builds on Jesus Christ.
O Lord, it's wondrous in our eyes,
That You were sacrificed!

We stand amazed! How can it be?
And yet we know it's true!
How strange is this insanity
Of those refusing You!

So teach us, Lord, to build aright,
Since now our eyes can see,
Because You clearly give us light
With truth that makes us free.
