Praise the Rock of our sal - va-tion, Laud His name from zone'to zone;

On that rock the Church is build-ed, Christ him-self the cor - ner-stone;

Vain" a-gainst our rock-built Zi - on Winds and wa-ters, fire and hail;

[blocks in formation]

her midst; a-gainst her Sin and hell shall not pre - vail.

2 Built of living stones, cemented

By the Spirit's unity,
Based on prophets and apostles,

Firm in faith and stayed on Thee, May Thy Church, O Lord Incarnate,

Grow in grace, in peace, in love; Emblem of the heavenly Zion,

The Jerusalem above.

3 Where Thou reignest, King of Glory,

Throned in everlasting light, Midst Thy saints, no more is needed

Sun by day, nor moon by night: Soon may we those portals enter

When this earthly strife is o'er; There to dwell with saints and angels, In Thy presence evermore.

Men see her şore 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.

3 Who now but will himself deny,

And yield to God submission, His word receive, on Christ rely,

Obtains a full remission; He is converted and made wise, And goes from hence to Paradise: Grant us this grace, O Savior!

Anon., German, 1526
