No more aliens but with angels as citizens,
Part of the family of God for all seasons;
Christ Himself is to be our cornerstone,
Relying on Him totally than on your own;
As several buildings framed as one temple,
Made as a sturdy structure not to crumble;
Being built to house God in the Spirit,
With room to store the reward you inherit.
In the family of Christ we are all as one,
Bonded with the Father, Spirit and the Son;
No strangers, for all do know your name,
For we are of one family that we acclaim;
Christ as our cornerstone where we unite,
With a firm foundation of spiritual might;
A temple for God with the Spirit to dwell,
A place for each of us to worship as well;
We are as of one in spirit when in Christ,
Who paid for the ultimate when sacrificed;
Allowing us to be once again with God,
Who we owe deep gratitude and applaud.

I really like the thoughts you convey that we are one in Christ, who is our Cornerstone. This is part of message and motto of our local Cornerstone Christian College in my home town, where my children went to in their childhood.
