Christ Is Made the Sure Foundation Lyrics
1 Christ is made the sure foundation,
Christ, our head and cornerstone,
chosen of the Lord and precious,
binding all the Church in one;
holy Zion’s help forever
and our confidence alone.
2 To this temple, where we call you,
come, O Lord of hosts, and stay;
come with all your lovingkindness,
hear your people as they pray;
and your fullest benediction
speak within these walls today.
3 Grant, we pray, to all your faithful
all the gifts they ask to gain;
what they gain from you forever
with the blessed to retain;
And hereafter in your glory
evermore with you to reign.
4 Praise and honor to the Father,
praise and honor to the Son,
praise and honor to the Spirit,
ever three and ever one:
one in might and one in glory
while unending ages run!
Christ Is Made the Sure Foundation Hymn History
“Christ Is Made the Sure Foundation” is another hymn that was translated from Latin by John M Neale in 1861.
This song celebrates the fact that Christ is the sure foundation for the church. He is the head and cornerstone of the church. The church is built on him and him alone.
If we need help, we need to pray to him, and he will not disappoint us.
John M Neale was a talented poet who won prizes for religious poetry eleven times when he was a student at Cambridge University.
