This Is The Threefold Truth / This Is The Threefold Truth On Which Our Faith Depends

Song written by:
Original in English: Fred Pratt Green

1
This is the threefold truth
On which our faith depends
And with this joyful cry
Worship begins and ends

Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ will come again

2
Made sacred by long use
New-minted for our time
Our liturgies sum up
The hope we have in him

Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ will come again

3
On this we fix our minds
As kneeling side by side
We take the bread and wine
From him the Crucified

Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ will come again

4
By this we are upheld
When doubt and grief assails
Our Christian fortitude
And only grace avails

Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ will come again

5
This is the threefold truth
which if we hold it fast
changes the world and us
and brings us home at last

Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ will come again

Great Is the Lord Almighty / The Lord Reigns He Is A Mighty God

Song written by:
Original in English: Dennis L. Jernigan

The Lord reigns He is a mighty God The Lord God reigns
The Lord reigns He is a mighty God The Lord God reigns

1
When the children of Israel came to the brink
He led them through letting Pharoah sink
Then the children were dancin’ as old Pharoah sank down
Lifting up a mighty joyful sound singing

Great is the Lord Almighty He is Lord He is God indeed
Great is the Lord Almighty He is God supreme
Great is the Lord Almighty He is Lord He is God indeed
Great is the Lord Great is the Lord

2
When the children of God came up to Jericho town
The Lord said children let’s walk around so for seven whole days
They walked around that great wall ’til the Lord said
Shout and watch it fall children

Great is the Lord Almighty He is Lord He is God indeed
Great is the Lord Almighty He is God supreme
Great is the Lord Almighty He is Lord He is God indeed
Great is the Lord Great is the Lord

3
When His children were dying and lost in their sin
My God died and He rose again
And I’ve been rejoicing since He took my blame
I thank You Lord praise Your name

Great is the Lord Almighty He is Lord He is God indeed
Great is the Lord Almighty He is God supreme
Great is the Lord Almighty He is Lord He is God indeed
Great is the Lord Great is the Lord

The Church’s One Foundation

Song based on the Bible verse:
1 Corinthians 3:11
For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Song written by:
Original in English: Samuel J. Stone

1
The Church’s one foundation
Is Jesus Christ her Lord
She is His new creation
By water 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

2
She is 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

3
The Church shall never perish
Her dear Lord to defend
To guide sustain and cherish
Is with her to the end
Though there be those who hate her
And false sons in her pale
Against both foe and traitor
She ever shall prevail

4
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

5
’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

6
Yet she on earth hath union
With God the Three in One
And mystic sweet communion
With those whose rest is won
With all her sons and daughters
Who by the Master’s hand
Led through the deathly waters
Repose in Eden land

7
O happy ones and holy
Lord give us grace that we
Like them the meek and lowly
On high may dwell with Thee
There past the border mountains
Where in sweet vales the Bride
With Thee by living fountains
Forever shall abide
