Matthew’s Spiritual Journey

The Church’s One Foundation

with one comment

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.

Elect from ev’ry 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 ev’ry grace endued.

‘Mid toil and tribultion and tumult of her war,
she waits the consummation of peace forever more;
till with the vision glorious her longing eyes are blest,
and the great church victorious shall be the church at rest.

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.

Words: Samuel J. Stone, 1866
Music: Samuel S. Wesley, 1864

  1. The one factor I can’t stand about the ipad is the truth that you cannot see flash content. That is I beleive the tabs with Android operating system are a very good alternative… even when the Android operating system drains your battery like crazy.
