Christ is Made the Sure Foundation
Words: Unknown, 7th Century; translated from Latin by John Mason Neale, 1851.
1. 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 forever, And her Confidence alone. 2. To this temple, where we call Thee, Come, O Lord of Hosts, today! With Thy faithful lovingkindness Hear Thy people 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.
