Today... 'Foundation Laid In Zion' - Poem by Roy Allen
There on Zion's mount stands a foundation stone
upon which the church through the ages has grown.
A Cornerstone that the Lord Jehovah laid.
A tried and tested stone that will not fade.
How firm a Foundation we have in the Lord
as He builds The Living Church upon His Word.
No other foundation will ever suffice
for we stand upon Christ's perfect sacrifice.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
So this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
'See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who trusts will never be dismayed.
I Corinthians 3: 11
For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
'The Foundation laid in Zion '
