Christ is made the sure foundation
Christ is made the sure foundation,
Christ the head and cornerstone
chosen of the Lord and precious,
binding all the church in one;
holy Zion’s help for ever,
and her confidence alone.
2. All within that holy city
dearly loved by God on high,
in exultant jubilation
sing, in perfect harmony;
God the One-in-Three adoring
in glad hymns eternally.
3. We as living stones implore you:
come among us, Lord, today!
With your promised loving-kindness
hear your people as we pray;
and the fulness of your blessing
in our fellowship display.
4. Here entrust to all your servants
what we long from you to gain-
that on earth and in the heavens
we your people shall remain,
till united in your glory
evermore with you we reign.
5. Praise and honour to the Father,
praise and honour to the Son,
praise and honour to the Spirit,
ever Three and ever One:
one in power and one in glory
while eternal ages run.
