How Firm a Foundation

VERSE 1
How firm a foundation
You saints of the Lord
Is laid for your faith in
His excellent Word
What more can He say
Than to you He has said
To you who for refuge
To Jesus have fled
To you who for refuge
To Jesus have fled

VERSE 2
Fear not I am with you
Oh be not dismayed
For I am your God
And will still give you aid
I’ll strengthen you help you
And cause you to stand
Upheld by My righteous
Omnipotent hand
Upheld by My righteous
Omnipotent hand

VERSE 3
When through the deep waters
I call you to go
The rivers of sorrow
Shall not overflow
For I will be with you
Your troubles to bless
And sanctify to you
Your deepest distress
And sanctify to you
Your deepest distress

VERSE 4
When through fiery trials
Your pathway shall lie
My grace all-sufficient
Shall be your supply
The flame shall not hurt you
I only design
Your dross to consume and
Your gold to refine
Your dross to consume and
Your gold to refine

VERSE 5
The soul that on Jesus
Has leaned for repose
I will not I will not
Desert to his foes
That soul though all hell
Should endeavor to shake
I’ll never no never
No never forsake
I’ll never no never
No never forsake
