Jesus Christ the Lord!
The Church’s One Foundation
by Best Loved Hymn
1 Corinthians 3 NKJV
- The church has one foundation,
’Tis Jesus Christ her Lord;
She is His new creation,
By spirit and the word.
From heav’n 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.
- Mid toil and tribulation, and tumult of her war,
she waits the consummation of peace forevermore,
till with the vision glorious her longing eyes are blest,
and the great church victorious shall be the church at rest
