Isaac Watts, 1719
Behold the sure Foundation-stone|
Which God in Zion lays,
To build our heav'nly hopes upon
And His eternal praise.

3. The foolish builders, scribe and priest,|
Reject it with disdain;
Yet on this Rock the Church shall rest,
And envy rage in vain.
4. What though the gates of hell withstood
