THE CORNERSTONE OF THIS SHAKY BUILDING

THE CORNERSTONE OF THIS SHAKY BUILDING

The cornerstone of this shaky building

Is grounded and free from harm.

It stands not upon this earth

But rests in God’s loving arms.

 

He welcomed me long ago

When I was just a child,

And He has never left me . . .

Not even for a little while.

 

And though I stray away, at times

Out into the dangerous dark,

He like a shepherd comes for me

And carries me cradled near His heart.

 

Yes, I have witnessed many trials;

Seen Love ones go to other lands.

Old Age with his scythe has crippled me.

This old building sways . . .  but still stands.

 

I know if I stay in God’s hands,

Enfolded here all cozy and warm,

 The devil may try hard to win me,

But he can never really do me harm.

 

For the cornerstone of this old building

Keeps me standing all safe and calm.

It upholds me in good and bad times . . .

Anchored safely in God’s loving arms.
