The church of God is stablished

Representative Text

1. The Church of God is stablished
Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
Indwelt by Christ all glorious
With Christ she shall accord.
The sweetness of Christ’s spirit
Within her life endures,
And to the weary nations
God’s day of peace ensures.

2. The Church of God enshrineth
Whate’er true men hold dear,
And with her strength doth cherish
The visions of the seer.
The patience of Christ’s spirit
Within her heart abides,
To hope she still doth witness,
Whatever ill betides.

3. The Church of God increaseth
Through sacrifice and pain;
Through travail and through sorrow
She makes her constant gain.
The passion of Christ’s spirit
Ne’er from the Church shall die;
Love shall the sin-vexed peoples
Redeem and sanctify.

4. The Church of God endureth,
Though vexed with inward strife;
To God’s sure end she moveth
For Christ is her true life.
The power of Christ’s strong spirit
The Church shall unify,
When, all names lost in one name,
The kingdom draweth nigh.
