Cornerstone

chief-cornerstone

In giving honor today,

For all who are fallen –

In remembering who are our heroes

And who is our enemy –

 

In giving honor today,

To the One who fell;

The same One who has risen

And remembering who the real enemy is

 

Let us give thanks

To all those who embody Him

Who stood and stand tall

And transmit His light and grace

 

Those who are bold and courageous enough

To fight when fighting is appropriate

To be living sacrifices

To never hate and always love

 

To those who raise His standard

And rush in to be His hands and feet

Lay their bodies and hearts on the line

Thank you.

This is what the Almighty Lord says:

I am going to lay a rock in Zion,
a rock that has been tested,
a precious cornerstone,
a solid foundation.
Whoever believes in him need never be shaken.”
(Isaiah 28:16)

Then Jesus asked them, “Didn’t you ever read this in the Scriptures?

‘The stone that the builders rejected
has now become the cornerstone.
This is the Lord’s doing,
and it is wonderful to see.’ (Psalm 118:22-23)

I tell you, the Kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation that will produce the proper fruit.” (Matthew 21:42-43)

 

Thank you to John Lewis at Not For Punks for the inspiration for this poem.
