  • Hymn - The Church's One Foundation

    1) The church's one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord;
    she is His new creation by water and the Word:
    from heav'n He came and sought her to be His holy bride;
    with His own blood He bought her, and for her life He died.

    2) Elect from every nation, yet one o'er all the earth
    her charter of salvation, one Lord, one faith, one birth;
    one holy name she blesses, partakes one holy food,
    and to one hope she presses, with every grace endued.

    3) Though with a scornful wonder
    men see her sore oppressed,
    by schism rent asunder, by heresies distressed,
    yet saints their watch are keeping,
    their cry goes up, "How long?"
    And soon the night of weeping, shall be the morn of song.

    4) The church shall never perish! He dear Lord to defend,
    to guide, sustain and cherish, is with her to the end;
    though there be those that hate her,
    and false sons in her pale,
    against a foe or traitor, she ever shall prevail.
