The Canticle


Christ is our foundation:
And our chief cornerstone.

1. We are no more strangers and foreigners:
but fellow citizens with the saints and of the household of God;

2. And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets:
Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone.

3. In whom all the building fitly framed together:
groweth unto a holy temple in the Lord;

4. In whom ye also are builded together:
for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

5. Except the Lord build the house:
their labor is but lost that build it.

6. The foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal:
let everyone that nameth the Name of Christ depart from iniquity.

Christ is our foundation:
And our chief cornerstone.
