1 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.

2 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.

3 Through toil and tribulation
And tumult of her war
She waits the consummation
Of peace forevermore
Till with the vision glorious
Her longing eyes are blessed,
And the great Church victorious
Shall be the Church at rest.

4 Yet she on earth has union
With the God, the Three in One,
And mystic sweet communion
With those whose rest is won.
O blessed heav'nly chorus!
Lord, save us by your grace
That we, like saints before us,
May see you face to face.

1 Un solo fundamento
Y un sólo un fundador
La santa Iglesia tiene
En Cristo, su Señor,
Haciéndola su esposa,
Del cielo descendió,
Y por su propia sangre
Su libertad compró.

2 Aunque es de muchas razas,
Disfruta de unidad:
Sólo una fe confiesa
En santa caridad;
Es uno su bautismo,
Un pan de santidad;
Por gracia siempre espera
Una felicidad.

3 Cercada de tumultos,
De guerra y confusión,
La paz eterna espera,
Serena en su visión;
Al fin, ya victoriosa,
La iglesia terrenal
Recibe por su premio
Descanso celestial.

4 Mas ella aquí disfruta
Celeste comunión
Con Dios y con los santos
En paz y perfección.
Jesús, cabeza nuestra,
Concédenos lugar
con los que habitan siempre
En tu celeste hogar.
