The Church's One Foundation

    D                A         G                 D
The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ, her Lord;
    D            G      D  G             A
she is his new creation by water and the Word.
     D                  G      D                  Em
From heaven he came and sought her to be his holy bride;
     D                G                       A       D
with his own blood he bought her, and for her life he died.

  D              A           G                D
Elect from every nation, yet one o’er all the earth;
    D             G       D   G                    A
her charter of salvation: one Lord, one faith, one birth.
    D             G   D                      Em
One holy name she blesses, partakes one holy food,
    D               G                         A    D
and to one hope she presses, with every grace endued.

       D               A          G             D
Though with a scornful wonder the world see her oppressed,
    D            G       D  G          A
by schisms rent asunder, by heresies distressed,
    D                  G   D                                Em
yet saints their watch are keeping; their cry goes up: “How long?”
    D                 G                    A       D
and soon the night of weeping shall be the morn of song.

    D                  A           G            D
The Church shall never perish, Her dear Lord to defend,
   D                   G   D       G               A
To guide, sustain, and cherish, Is with her to the end:
       D                  G    D                          Em
Though there be those who hate her, And false sons in her pale,
 D                G                 A     D
Against or foe or traitor, She ever shall prevail.
