Christ, thou art the sure foundationTranslator: J. M. Neale (1851)
Published in 10 hymnals
1 Christ, Thou art the sure Foundation,
Thou the Head and Cornerstone;
Chosen of the Lord, and precious,
Binding all the Church in one;
Thou Thy Zion's help forever,
And her confidence alone.
2 To this temple, where we call Thee,
Come, O Lord of Hosts, today!
With Thy wonted loving-kindness,
Hear Thy servants as they pray,
And Thy fullest benediction
Shed within its walls alway.
3 Here vouchsafe to all Thy servants
What they ask of Thee to gain,
What they gain from Thee forever
With the blessèd to retain,
And hereafter in Thy glory
Evermore with Thee to reign.
4 Praise and honor to the Father,
Praise and honor to the Son,
Praise and honor to the Spirit,
Ever Three and ever One;
One in might and one in glory,
While unending ages run.
