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,
You who unto Jesus for refuge have fled?
Fear not, I am with Thee, 0 be not dismayed
1, 1 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 the deep waters
I call thee to go,
The rivers of grief shall not Thee overflow:
For I will be with thee in 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 endeavour to shake,
I’ll never, no, never, no. never forsake!
