Christ Is Made The Sure Foundation [#SureFoundation #EnglishChristianSong #eChristianSongs]

Song based on the Bible verse:
Isaiah 28:16
Therefore thus says the Lord God:
“Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation,
A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation;
Whoever believes will not act hastily.

Song written by:
Original in Latin: Writer Unknown
Translated to English from Latin: John Mason Neale

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 her confidence alone

All that dedicated city
Dearly loved of God on high
In exultant jubilation
Pours perpetual melody
God the One in Three adoring
In glad hymns eternally

To this temple where we call Thee
Come O Lord of Hosts today
With Thy wonted lovingkindness
Hear Thy servants as they pray
And Thy fullest benediction
Shed within its walls alway

Here vouchsafe to all Thy servants
What they ask of Thee to gain
What they gain from Thee forever
With the blessèd to retain
And hereafter in Thy glory
Evermore with Thee to reign

Laud and honor to the Father
Laud and honor to the Son
Laud and honor to the Spirit
Ever Three and ever One
Consubstantial co-eternal
While unending ages run
