HYMN | The Church’s One Foundation
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.
Though with a scornful wonder
Men see her sore oppressed,
By schisms rent asunder,
By heresies distressed,
Yet saints their watch are keeping,
Their cry goes up, "How long?"
And soon the night of weeping
Shall be the morn of song.
Yet she on earth hath union
With the 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.

PSALM 121 | Sing Psalms
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills --
Where am I to look for my aid?
2 My help comes to me from the LORD
By whom earth and heaven were made.
3 Your foot he will not leave to slide --
His watch over you he will keep.
4 The LORD over Isr’el keeps watch,
And he will not slumber or sleep.
5 The LORD will keep watch over you --
Your shade from the heat and the light.
6 The sun will not harm you by day;
The moon will not harm you by night.
7 The LORD will protect you from harm --
Your life he will ever defend.
8 He’ll guard every step that you take
Both now and for days without end.
