MARK YE WELL HER BULWARKS




O where are kings and empires now
Of old, that went and came?
But Lord, Thy Church is praying yet,
A thousand years the same.


We mark her goodly battlements
And her foundations strong;
We hear, within, the solemn voice
Of her unending song.


For not like kingdoms of the world
Thy holy Church, O God,
Though earthquake shocks are threatening her,
And tempests are abroad.


Unshaken as eternal hills,
Immovable she stands,
A mountain that shall fill the earth,
A house not made by hands.


---Alternative verses---


O where are kings and empires now,
Of old that went and came?
The church of Christ is praying yet,
A thousand years the same.


O where are kings and empires now
Of old, that went and came?
But Holy Church is praying yet,
A thousand years the same.


Mark ye her holy battlements
And her foundations strong;
We hear, within, the solemn voice
Of her unending song.


For not like kingdoms of the world,
The holy church of God!
Though earthquake shocks are rocking her,
And tempests are abroad.


Unshaken as eternal hills,
Unmovable she stands,
A mountain that shall fill the earth,
A fane unbuilt by hands.
