Hymn: The Church's One Foundation

    The Church’s One Foundation
    By: Samuel J. Stone

    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.

    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 ev'ry grace endued

    ’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.

    Yet she on earth hath union
    With God the Three in One,
    And mystic sweet communion
    With those whose rest is won,
    O happy ones and holy!
    Lord, give us grace that we,
    Like them, the meek and lowly,
    On high may dwell with Thee.  Amen
