How firm a foundation,
Ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith
In His excellent word
What more can He say
Than to You He hath said,
To You, whom for refuge,
To Jesus have fled?

Fear not, I am with thee,
O be not dismayed
For I am thy God
And will still give thee aid
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee,
And cause thee to stand
Upheld by my righteous,
Omnipotent hand.

When through fiery trials
Thy pathway shall lie
My grace, all-sufficient,
Shall be thy supply
The flame shall not hurt thee,
I only design
Thy dross to consume
And thy gold to refine

When through the deep waters
I call thee to go
The rivers of woe
Shall not thee overflow
For I will be with thee,
Thy trouble to bless
And sanctify to thee
Thy deepest distress

The soul that on Jesus
Hath leaned for repose
I will not, I will not
Desert to its foes
That soul, though all hell
Should endeavor to shake
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.
