The Church Is One Foundation. Is Jesus Christ Her Lord.






1.      The Church is 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.





2.      Elect from every nation,

Yet one over all the earth,

Her charter of Salvation

One Lord, one faith, one birth,

One holy name she blesses

Partakes on holy food,

And to one hope she presses,

With every grace endued.




3.      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, “Hoe Long?”

And soon the night of weeping

Shall be the morn of song.






4.      ‘Mid toil and tribulation,

And tumult of her war,

She wait the consummation

Of peace for evermore.

Till with the vision glorious

Her longing eyes are blest,

And the great Church victorious

Shall be the Church at rest.






5.      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. Amen!  
















May God bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May God make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!


May the grace the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen!
















I am a fun loving, hard working, Christian husband and father, who loves to blog.
