Cornerstone – a rhyming acrostic


The week after Easter reminds us that “The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes.”

Come all of you who set your trust
On treasures corrupted by moth and rust,
Reckoning your value by what you possess,
Needing ever more stuff as your key to success.
Examine yourself, ask what you are worth,
Riches don’t lie in the mines of the earth.
Sands may shift, but one anchor holds tight –
The lamb of God, the world’s one true light
Our rock of ages, our firm foundation
Name above all names from the dawn of creation
Emmanuel, Logos, hope of each nation.
