Lively Stones

 

Lively Stones
By Marie C Neubauer

Although this world is shaking,
The house of God will stand,
Built with ‘lively stones’,
Placed there by Jesus hand,
It is His living body,
He the head and cornerstone,
Filled with the glory
Of the Lord and He alone!

Although not always visible
For some stones man may reject,
Repentant men that come to Christ
Find forgiveness and respect,
He changes hearts, directs our steps,

No more to walk alone,
Part of Christ’s living body,
In His church a ‘lively stone’!

‘Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men,
but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones,
are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood,
to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture,
“Behold, I lay in Zion A chief cornerstone, elect, precious,
And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.”’
[1 Peter 2:4-6]
