255. HOW FIRM A FOUNDATION

Church Hymnal 1941,


1.
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, 
Who unto the Saviour for refuge have fled? 
Who unto the Saviour for refuge have fled? 

2.
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, 
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand. 

3.
When through deep waters I call thee to go, 
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow; 
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless, 
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress, 
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress. 

4.
When through fiery trials thy pathways 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, 
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine. 

5.
The soul that on Jesus doth lean for respose, 
I will not, I will not depart 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.
