And pulled me from the raging sea

His strength will help me scale these walls

The Church’s One Foundation

Samuel J. Stone, 1866

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
Elect 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 or foe or traitor
She ever shall prevail.

Verse 4
Though with a scornful wonder
Men 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,
O happy ones and holy!
Lord, give us grace that we
Like them, the meek and lowly,
On high may dwell…
That we may dwell…
That we will dwell with Thee.

When floods the tempest high;
When on doth rush the enemy,
O Savior, be Thou nigh!

That, when the flood is past,
I may Th’eternal brightness see
And share Thy joy at last.

That I may sing above
To Father, Spirit, and to Thee
The strains of praise and love.

O My Soul Arise

Charles Wesley and Eric McAllister

Verse 1
Arise, my soul, arise! Shake off your guilty fears.
The bleeding sacrifice on my behalf appears.
Before the throne my surety stands,
Before the throne my surety stands.
My name is written on His hands.

Verse 2
He ever lives above for me to intercede.
His all redeeming love, His precious blood to plead.
His blood atoned for every race,
His blood atoned for every race.
And sprinkles now the Throne of Grace.

Chorus
O my soul, arise! Behold the risen Christ,
Your great High Priest, your spotless sacrifice!
O my soul, arise! God owns you as His child!
Shake off your guilty fears, my soul, arise!

Verse 3
Five bleeding wounds He bears, received on Calvary.
They pour effectual prayers, they strongly plead for me.
“Forgive him, O forgive,” they cry.
“Forgive him, O forgive,” they cry.
“Don’t let that ransomed sinner die.”

Verse 4
The Father hears Him pray, His dear anointed One;
He cannot turn away, the presence of His Son;
His Spirit answers to the blood,
His Spirit answers to the blood,
and tells me I am born of God.

Chorus
O my soul, arise! Behold the risen Christ,
Your great High Priest, your spotless sacrifice!
O my soul, arise! God owns you as His child!
Shake off your guilty fears, my soul, arise!

Verse 5
My God is reconciled, His pard’ning voice I hear.
He owns me as His child; I can no longer fear.
With confidence I now draw nigh.
With confidence I now draw nigh,
and “Father, Abba, Father” cry.

Chorus
O my soul, arise! Behold the risen Christ,
Your great High Priest, your spotless sacrifice!
O my soul, arise! God owns you as His child!
Shake off your guilty fears, my soul, arise!

All People That On Earth Do Dwell

William Kethe, 1561

Verse 1
All people that on earth do dwell,
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
Him serve with fear, His praise forth-tell,
Come ye before Him and rejoice.

Verse 2
Know that the Lord is God indeed:
Without our aid He did us make;
We are His folk, He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.

Verse 3
O enter then His gates with praise,
Approach with joy His courts unto;
Praise, laud and bless His Name always,
For it is seemly so to do.

Verse 4
Oh know the Lord our God is good,
His mercy is forever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.

Verse 5
Praise God from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
