教會根基

歌詞

Verse 1
只一的教會根基,
全為基督角石;
聖水與聖道所設,
此乃主新陶造。
為這聖潔的新婦,
基督卑躬入世;
捨身為使她得生,
以血親作贖價。

Verse 2
儘是萬邦所選出,
信眾皆歸一體;
救恩確證乃一主、
一信、一洗兌顯。
同奉至尊一聖名,
餅酒一心共晉,
同頌獨一的盼望,
永遠一愛共領。

Verse 4
歷盡萬劫的教會,
旁人嘲笑責罵;
內訌使她身分裂,
歪理擾亂拆毀。
門徒痛醒心焦急:
漆黑可否渡過?
但聽啜泣變歡呼,
瞬眼即見亮照。

Verse 5
就在戰爭喧聲間、
重壓艱苦之中,
教會卻信有盼望,
安恬等待成就;
直至望眼穿秋水,
光輝之景獲見;
榮耀奏凱的教會,
永遠安歇樂暢。

Verse 6
儘在俗世卻契合
奧秘三一之主;
已享安息的聖徒
享有親密聯繫。
期望我等皆可以
分沾這種蜜契;
同樣互愛又謙卑,
與救主永共處。

Verse 1
The church’s one foundation
is Jesus Christ her Lord;
she is his new creation
by water and the Word.
From heaven he came and sought her
to be his holy bride;
with his own blood he bought her,
and for her life he died.

Verse 2
She is from every 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 every grace endued.

Verse 3
The Church shall never perish!
Her dear Lord to defend,
To guide, sustain, and cherish,
Is with her to the end:
Though there be those who hate her,
And false sons in her pale,
Against both foe or traitor
She ever shall prevail.

Verse 4
Though with a scornful wonder
we 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.

Verse 5
Mid toil and tribulation,
and tumult of her war,
she waits the consummation
of peace forevermore;
till, with the vision glorious,
her longing eyes are blest,
and the great church victorious
shall be the church at rest.

Verse 6
Yet she on earth hath union
with God the Three in One,
and mystic sweet communion
with those whose rest is won.
With all her sons and daughters
Who, by the Master’s hand
Led through the deathly waters,
Repose in Eden land.

Verse 7
O happy ones and holy!
Lord, give us grace that we
Like them, the meek and lowly,
On high may dwell with Thee:
There, past the border mountains,
Where in sweet vales the Bride
With Thee by living fountains
Forever shall abide!
