The Church's One Foundation  Misc. Gospel

The C[D]hurch's [G]one foun[A7]dation
Is [G]Jesus [A7]Christ her [D]Lord;
She is His new cre[G]ation
By [Em]water a[D]nd the W[A]ord:
From he[D]av'n He came and s[G]ought h[D]er
To [Bm]be His h[B]oly b[Em]ride;
With H[D]is own [G]blood He [A7]bought her,
And [Em7]for her [A7]life He [D]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.
