“You That Know the Lord Is Gracious”

K. Lee Scott,
Summer Choir

You that know the Lord is gracious,
You for whom a cornerstone
Stands, of God elect and precious,
Laid that you may build thereon,
See that on that sure foundation
You a living temple raise,
Towers that may tell forth salvation,
Walls that may re-echo praise.

Living stones, by God appointed
Each to their allotted place,
Kings and priests, by God anointed,
Shall you not declare God’s grace?
You, a royal generation,
Tell the tidings of your birth,
Tidings of a new creation
To an old and weary earth.

Tell the praise of God who called you
Out of darkness into light,
Broke the fetters that enthralled you,
Gave you freedom, peace and sight;
Tell the tale of sins forgiven,
Strength renewed and hope restored,
Till the earth, in tune with heaven,
Praise and magnify the Lord. — C. A. Arlington (1950)
