From the Depths to the Heights

Text: Psalm 118:22-26 (NIV)

22 The stone the builders rejected

has become the capstone;

23 the Lord has done this,

and it is marvelous in our eyes.

24 This is the day the Lord has made;

let us rejoice and be glad in it.

25 O Lord, save us;

O Lord, grant us success.

26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

From the house of the Lord we bless you.
