Meaning of the Stone   

Life-giving waters issued freely 
from rod-struck rock, rescuing Moses
and the congregation thirsting in Horeb.
When the people promised to obey, 
Joshua set a stone beneath an oak,
by the sanctuary
as witness of their covenant.
In Mizpeh, the Lord 
discomfited the Philistines, 
so Samuel raised a stone called Ebenezer
saying, The Lord hath helped us.
We build on the Rock of our Salvation  
Christ, the Stone of Israel, 
is our sure foundation.
