[[Full Lyrics]] [Verse 1] The church’s one foundation Is Jesus Christ her Lord; She is his new creation By water and the Word. From heaven he came and sought her To be his holy bride; With his own blood he bought her, And for her life he died. [Verse 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. [Verse 3] Though with a scornful wonder Men see her sore oppressed, Though foes would rend asunder, The Rock where she doth rest, Yet saints their faith are keeping; Their cry goes up, “How long?” And soon the night of weeping Shall be the morn of song. [Verse 4] ‘Mid toil and tribulation, And tumult of her war, She waits the consummation Of peace forevermore; Till, with the vision glorious, Her longing eyes are blest, And the great church victorious Shall be the church at rest.
