25. The Church's One Foundation

The Church's one Foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord;
She is His new creation by water and the word;
From heaven 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 savlation one Lord, one faith, one birth;
One holy name she blesses, Partakes one holy food,
And to one hope she presses with ev'ry grace endued.

'Mid toil and tributation and tumult of her war,
She wait 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 and Christ, His Son,
And there is 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, may one day reign with Thee.

Recorded on a Yamaha CVP electronic piano, played by Gerry Bernardo from the Christian Educational Ministries Hymnbook.
