Had I ten thousand gifts beside,

I'd cleave to Jesus crucified,

And build on him alone;

For no foundation is there given,

On which I'd place my hopes of heaven,

But Christ, the corner stone.

There is no path to heav'nly bliss,

To solid joy, or lasting peace.

But Christ th' appointed road;

O may we tread the sacred way!

By faith rejoice, and praise and pray

Till we sit down with God.
