lyrics

brick by brick, and stone by stone
we're building a fortress, we're building a home
we're building a cathedral for the ones to come
and you laid the cornerstone

you led us with courage and sacrifice
with integrity, wisdom, and good advice
brick by brick, and day by day
you guided us along the way

how will we find the way?
without you beside us every day
how will we do it on our own?
as we build atop that cornerstone

we carry the burden, we carry the load
as we march and we trudge down the long long road
we could always count on you
to steer us right and see us through

with vision you guided us, you never divided us
you took the arrows with your own chest
in the darkest night you kept hope burning bright
you taught us always to do our best

how will we find the way?
without you beside us every day
how will we do it on our own?
as we build atop that cornerstone

we will find our way
we'll miss you beside us every day
you have taught us to do it on our own
we will build atop your cornerstone

one day we'll know it, one day we'll see
a world where people can all love free
and when that cathedral is topped off and done
we'll thank you for laying the cornerstone
