 1.  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.  

 2.  To this temple, where we call Thee,
     Come, O Lord of Hosts, today!
     With Thy faithful lovingkindness
     Hear Thy people as they pray.
     And Thy fullest benediction
     Shed within its walls alway.  

 3.  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.
