Look to the Rock

Come to the tomb where the rising Dawn was buried.
Look to the rock from which the Son was hewn,
The pit where Jesus crucified was quarried;
Rejected, now become the cornerstone.

He rose. He lives newlife sprung from the grave
With Godhead, might, and majesty restored;
The emptied Christ fulfilled, no longer slave.
Dark Lucifer falls crushed beneath the Lord.

Let us His living stones cry out our praise:
Hosanna! Glory to creation’s King.
Blest first fruit who makes all new. Then raise
The Alleluia, our reflowering.

Look! Water rushing from the stricken Rock
Where we are born again, His ransomed flock.
