You promised, Lord, that You would work
To build a strong and vibrant church—
A church that stands by grace alone
On Christ, our rock and Cornerstone;
On Christ, our rock and Cornerstone.
And so we pray: Lord, build Your church!
Deploy Your saints across the earth;
Destroy hell’s feeble, falling gates;
And glory in Your church’s praise;
And glory in Your church’s praise!
You called us, Lord, to join Your work:
To raise a pure and holy church—
A temple made of living stone
United as Your Spirit’s home;
United as Your Spirit’s home.
We thank You, Lord, that You have worked
To found a gospel-preaching church—
And yet, our task remains undone;
Lord, build Your church until You come;
Lord, build Your church until You come!
