699. Christ Is Made the Sure Foundation

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 our confidence alone;
Holy Zion's help forever,
and our confidence alone.

2 To this temple where we call you,
come, O Lord of hosts and stay;
come, with all your loving kindness,
hear your people as they pray,
and your fullest benediction
shed within these walls alway;
and your fullest benediction
shed within these walls alway.

3 Grant, we pray, to all your faithful
all the gifts they ask to gain;
what they gain from you forever
with the blessed to retain;
and hereafter in your glory
evermore with you to reign;
and hereafter in your glory
evermore with you to reign.

4 Praise and honor to the Father,
praise and honor to the Son,
praise and honor to the Spirit,
ever three and ever one,
one in might and one in glory
while unending ages run;
one in might and one in glory,
while unending ages run!
