THE CHURCH’S ONE FOUNDATION

Is Jesus Christ, her Lord;

She is His new creation

By water and the word;

From heaven He came and sought her

To be His holy bride,

With His own blood He bought her,

And for her life He died.

 

Elect from every nation,

Yet one o’er all the earth,

Her charter of salvation—

One Lord, one faith, one birth;

One holy name she blesses,

Partakes one holy food,

And to one hope she presses

With every grace endued.

 

Though with a scornful wonder

Men see her sore oppressed,

By schisms rent asunder,

By heresies distressed,

Yet saints their watch are keeping,

Their cry goes up, ‘How long?’

And soon the night of weeping

Shall be the morn of song.

 

’Mid toil, and tribulation,

And tumult of her war,

She waits the consummation

Of peace forever more;

Till with the vision glorious

Her longing eyes are blessed,

And the great church victorious

Shall be the church at rest.

 

Yet she on earth hath union

With God the Three in One,

And mystic sweet communion

With those whose rest is won:

O happy ones and holy!

Lord, give us grace that we,

Like them, the meek and lowly,

On high may dwell with Thee.

Samuel John Stone.


I AM A NEW CREATION,

No more in condemnation,

Here in the grace of God I stand.

My heart is overflowing,

My love just keeps on growing,

Here in the grace of God I stand.

 

And I will praise You Lord,

Yes, I will praise You Lord,

And I will sing of all that You have done.

A joy that knows no limit,

A lightness in my spirit,

Here in the grace of God I stand.

   Dave Bilbrough


 I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE,

He who comes to Me shall not hunger,

He who believes in Me shall not thirst.

No one can come to Me

Unless the Father draw him.

 

And I will raise him up,

And I will raise him up,

And I will raise him up on the last day.

 

The bread that I will give

Is My flesh for the life of the world,

And he who eats of this bread,

He shall live for ever,

He shall live for ever.

 

Unless you eat

Of the flesh of the Son of Man

And drink of His blood,

And drink of His blood,

You shall not have life within you.

 

I am the resurrection,

I am the life,

He who believes in Me

Even if he die,

He shall live for ever.

 

Yes, Lord, we believe

That You are the Christ,

The Son of God

Who has come

Into the world

  1. Suzanne Toolan.

FOR ALL THE SAINTS, who from their labours rest,

Who Thee by faith before the world confessed,

Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

 

Thou wast their Rock, their fortress, and their might;

Thou, Lord, their Captain in the well-fought fight;

Thou in the darkness drear their one true light.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

 

O may Thy soldiers, faithful, true and bold,

Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old,

And win, with them, the victor’s crown of gold!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

 

O blest communion, fellowship divine!

We feebly struggle, they in glory shine;

Yet all are one in Thee, for all are Thine.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

 

And when the strife is fierce, the warfare long,

Steals on the ear the distant triumph song,

And hearts are brave again, and arms are strong.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

 

The golden evening brightens in the west;

Soon, soon to faithful warriors cometh rest;

Sweet is the calm of paradise the blest.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

 

But lo! there breaks a yet more glorious day;

The saints triumphant rise in bright array;

The King of glory passes on His way.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

 

From earth’s wide bounds, from ocean’s farthest coast,

Through gates of pearl streams in the countless host,

Singing to Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

W. How.
