Holy priests are living stones
|Holy priests are living stones
For God’s building work today;
If these stones would builded be
All the priests must learn to pray.
|To the holiest often come,
In the spirit touch the throne,
Let the Lord flow thru in prayer,
Thus the building work is done.
|All the saints must serve as priests,
That the living stones they be;
Each must priestly work perform,
Then their functions we will see.
|Tent and priests of olden times
Always did together go;
When the priests served in the tent,
Into one the two did flow.
|Now the building spiritual
And the priesthood all are one;
Now the building of the house
By the priestly work is done.
|In the priests the substance is
Of the building work replete;
When the priests their work discharge,
Then God’s house will be complete.
|Building God and man in one
Is their work before the Lord;
In this fellowship divine
Saints are built in one accord.
|When in prayer our spirits blend,
Then together built are we,
Then a priesthood we become,
Off’ring sacrifice to Thee.
|Grant us grace, O Lord, that we
Treasure dear the priestly call;
In the spirit serve and pray,
That Thy church be built withal.
