“On Christ Salvation Rests Secure”

On Christ salvation rests secure;
The Rock of ages must endure;
Nor can that faith be overthrown
Which rests upon the “Living Stone.”

 

No other hope shall intervene:
To Him we look, on Him we lean;
Other foundations we disown,
And build on Christ, the “Living Stone.”

 

In Him it is ordained to raise
A temple to the Father’s praise,
Composed of all the saints who own
No Saviour but the “Living Stone.”

 

View the vast building, see it rise;
The work how great, the plan how wise!
Oh, wondrous fabric, power unknown
That rears it on the “Living Stone!”

 

But most adore His precious name,
His glory and His grace proclaim:
For us, condemned, despised, undone,
He gave Himself, the “Living Stone.”

 

~By Samuel Medley (1738-1799)~

 

**SHARED QUOTE**

For all of us who are born again of God’s Holy Spirit, we are eternally
secure. Our faith is secure in Christ Jesus. Our good works did not
save us, nor can our good works keep us saved…
but Christ keeps us secure. He has given us His Spirit–
which is the “earnest” of our salvation.”
