327. Church Of The Living God

1 Church of the Living God,
Pillar and ground of truth,
Keep the old paths the fathers trod
In thy illumined youth.

2 Once to the saints was given
All blessed gospel lore;
There, written down in words from heaven,
Thou hast it evermore.

3 Fear not, though doubts abound,
And scoffing tongues deride;
Love of God’s Word finds surer ground
When to the utmost tried.

4 God’s Spirit in the Church,
Still lives unspent, untired,
Inspiring hearts that fain would search
The truths Himself inspired.

5 Move, Holy Ghost, with might
Amongst us as of old;
Dispel the falsehood, and unite
In true faith and true fold.
