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.

To this temple, where we call thee
Come, O Lord of Hosts, today!
With thy faithful loving-kindness
Hear thy people 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 blessed 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
One in might and one in glory
While unending ages run.

The lyrics to "Christ Is Made The Sure Foundation" is based on a 7th century Latin hymn. The music is by Henry Smart.
