    Verse 1
    Christ is made the sure Foundation,
    Christ the Head and Corner-stone,
    Chosen of the Lord, and precious,
    Binding all the Church in one,
    Holy Sion's help for ever,
    And her confidence alone.

    Verse 2
    To this Temple, where we call Thee,
    Come, O Lord of Hosts, today;
    With Thy wonted loving-kindness
    Hear Thy people as they pray;
    And Thy fullest benediction
    Shed within its walls alway.

    Verse 3
    Here vouchsafe to all Thy servants
    What they ask of Thee to gain;
    What they gain from Thee for ever
    With the Blessed to retain,
    And hereafter in Thy glory
    Evermore with Thee to reign.

    Verse 4
    Praise and honour to the Father,
    Praise and honour to the Son,
    Praise and honour to the Spirit,
    Ever Three and ever One;
    One in Might, and One in Glory,
    While Eternal Ages run.
