21 I will give thanks to You, for You have heard and answered me;
And You have become my salvation [my Rescuer, my Savior].
22 The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief corner stone.
23 This is from the Lord and is His doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This [day in which God has saved me] is the day which the Lord has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
“The building block that was rejected Became the cornerstone of a whole new world. When I am down and unsuspected. With a burden that does not show. I think what time has resurrected. And how the sun can make the water flow. There is a man who has collected all the sorrow in our eyes. He gives us love as God directed but is seldom recognized. When all your dreams have been connected. And your vision has been returned. Remember, love, you are protected. By the truth your heart has learned. The building block that was rejected Became the cornerstone of a whole new world!” – Noel Paul Stookey (Ps. Dale).
