[Verse 1]
        D            D/F#
The church's one foundation
    G               Asus  A
Is Jesus Christ her Lord,
D                  D/F#
She is His new creation
    G             Asus  A
By water and the Word.
       Em                 D/F#
From heaven He came and sought her
   G             Asus  A
To be His holy bride;
      D                D/F#
With His own blood He bought her,
     G       A       D
And for her life He died.

[Verse 2]
  D               D/F#
Elect from every nation,
     G               Asus  A
Yet one over all the earth;
      D            D/F#
Her charter of salvation,
     G                     Asus  A
One Lord, one faith, one birth;
     Em             D/F#
One holy Name she blesses,
    G              Asus  A
Partakes one holy food,
     D                D/F#
And to one hope she presses,
      G      A      D
With every grace endued.

[Verse 3]
        D               D/F#
Though with a scornful wonder
     G               Asus  A
Men see her sore oppressed,
      D            D/F#
By schisms rent asunder,
    G             Asus  A
By heresies distressed,
     Em                     D/F#
Yet saints their watch are keeping;
       G                 Asus  A
Their cry goes up, "How long?"

      D                D/F#
And soon the night of weeping
      G       A       D
Shall be the morn of song.

[Verse 4]
            D              D/F#
The church shall never perish,
     G              Asus  A
Her dear Lord to defend
     D                  D/F#
To guide, sustain and cherish,
    G              Asus  A
Is with her to the end
         Em                D/F#
Though there be those that hate her,
     G                 Asus  A
And false sons in her pale
   D               D/F#
Against a foe or traitor,
    G      A       D
She ever shall prevail

[Verse 5]
     D             D/F#
Mid toil and tribulation,
     G             Asus  A
And tumult of her war,
     D              D/F#
She waits the consummation
     G           Asus  A
Of peace forevermore;
       Em               D/F#
'Til, with the vision glorious,
      G                  Asus  A
Her longing eyes are blessed,
     D                   D/F#
And the great church victorious
      G        A        D
Shall be the church at rest.

[Verse 6]
     D                 D/F#
Yet she on earth hath union
      G               Asus  A
With God the Three in One,
      D             D/F#
And mystic sweet communion
       G                 Asus  A
With those whose rest is won.
   Em             D/F#
O happy ones and holy!
       G                 Asus  A
Lord, give us grace that we
       D                 D/F#
Like them, the meek and lowly,
    G         A          D
On high may dwell with Thee.
