1 How firm a foun-dation, ye saints of the Lord,
2 "Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dis-mayed;
3 "When through fiery trials thy path-way shall lie,
4 "The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for re-pose,
1 Is laid for your faith in His ex - cellent word!
2 For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
3 My grace, all suf-fi - cient, shall be thy sup-ply;
4 I will not, I will not de-sert to its foes;
1 What more can He say than to you He hath said,
2 I'll strength-en thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
3 The flame shall not hurt thee; I on - ly de - sign
4 That soul, Though all hell should en-deav -or to shake,
1 To you who for ref - uge to Je - sus have fled?
2 Up - held by My right-eous, om-nip -otent hand.”
3 Thy dross to con-sume, and thy gold to re-fine.
4 I’ll nev - er, no nev - er, no nev -er for-sake.”
