‘Cornerstone’ TobyMac And Zach Williams Official Music Video - Christian Music Videos

Two musicians teamed up to perform a song about relying on and building a firm foundation on the cornerstone of life.

Life can feel like a series of unfortunate events at times. Circumstances can occur that leave individuals battered, bruised and searching for answers. Yes, hurt and struggles can cause people to question what they thought they previously knew.

However, there is One that, through everything, through all the pain and sorrow, will never leave or forsake us. Christ is the only constant in a continually changing world filled with sin and shame. He is the firm foundation and the solid rock. He is our cornerstone. 

In the official music video for “Cornerstone,” a song from TobyMac and Zach Williams, the two musicians sing about that firm foundation to rely upon during life’s many trials, storms and changes. 

The song’s first verse mentions that through all the trouble and cold nights, Christ is present. He provided shelter and comfort during difficult times. He “always held me close,” the musicians sing.

The song’s second verse details people struggling with sin, shame and a troubling past. While people may try and fix and manage a situation themselves, it often ends up a bigger mess than before. 

However, thankfully, as the chorus points out, there is a firm foundation to build our lives upon. Christ is the cornerstone. All other ground is sinking sand. 

“Seasons come and seasons go
They take me high, then leave me low
But I’m still standing on the only rock I know
You’re my cornerstone”

The song’s video also reinforces the powerful message found in the lyrics. People throughout the video are struggling with problems. They are at their lowest point, leaning on and having put their faith in things other than Christ. They are all faced with a decision: continue on with their sinking foundation or turn to the cornerstone. 

Isaiah 28:16 “There thus says the Lord Yahweh, ‘Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone of a sure foundation. He who believes shall not act hastily.”
