The Church is One Foundation Lyrics

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.

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.

’Mid toil and tribulation,
And tumult of her war,
She waits the consummation
Of peace for evermore;
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,
In love may dwell with Thee.


1st Corinthians 12 : 12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is Christ. 1st Corinthians 12 : 27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and severally members thereof. Romans 12 : 5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and severally members one of another. 1st Corinthians 3 : 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2 : 20 being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone;
