The Church's One Foundation

D G A7 The Church's one foundation G A7 D Is Jesus Christ her Lord; G She is His new creation Em D A By water and the Word: D G D From heav'n He came and sought her Bm B Em To be His holy bride; D G A7 With His own blood He bought her, Em7 A7 D And for her life He died. Elect from ev'ry nation, Yet one o'er all the earth, Her charter of salvation, One Lord, one faith, one birth; One holy Name she blesses, Partakes on 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 for evermore; Till, with 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.
