Verse 1: God’s family is His church divine, Begun, sustained, by His wise design; The ark of age and the shrine of youth! From her alone goes the word of truth.
Verse 2: Beyond are those who have conquered death; Below are they who abide in faith, The twain, yon host and the saints of earth One household are by a holy birth.
Verse 3: What glory there! O what blessings here One hope, one Lord and His name to wear! One church, one creed, meeting ev’ry need All nations blest by His righteous seed.
Chorus: The church of God is the bride of Christ Redeemed by His blood what a purchase price! The kingdom of God and saints’ abode; The realm of life for the sons of God.
