Unknown, c. 700, translated by John Neale, 1851
Christ, Thou art the sure Foundation,|
Thou the Head and Corner-stone;
Chosen of the Lord and precious
Binding all the Church in one;
Thou Thy Zion's Help forever
And her Confidence alone.
2. To this temple, where we call Thee,
3. Here voucesafe to all Thy servants|
What they ask of Thee to gain,
What they gain from Thee forever
With the blessed to retain,
And hereafter in Thy glory,
Evermore with Thee to reign.
4. Praise and honor to the Father,
