How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
    E              D                      A  
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!
      E            D                      A
What more can He say than to you He hath said

Who unto the Savior,Who unto the Savior,
     E           D                    A
Who unto the Savior, for refuge have fled?

In every condition, -- in sickness, in health,
     E          D                    A
In poverty's vale, or abounding in wealth,
     E              D                   A
At home and abroad, on the land, or the sea, --

As thy days may demand, As thy days may demand,
    E                D           A
As thy days may demand, So thy succor shall be.

Fear not, I am with thee, oh, be not dismayed,
              E           D                A
For I am thy God and will still give thee aid;
                E                D                 A
I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,

Upheld by My righteous, Upheld by My righteous,
     E                  D             A       
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand.

When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
      E              D                A
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
    E                   D                A 
For I will be with thee thy troubles to bless

And sanctify to thee, And sanctify to thee, 
    E                 D                  A
And sanctify to thee, thy deepest distress.

When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
     E                    D                A
My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply.
     E                          D           A
The flames shall not hurt thee; I only design

Thy dross to consume, Thy dross to consume, 
      E               D                   A
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.

E'en down to old age all My people shall prove
        E              D               A
My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;
      E                         D          A
And when gray hairs shall their temples adorn,

Like lambs they shall still, Like lambs they shall still, 
       E                    D                A
Like lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne.

The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose
   E                  D               A
I will not, I cannot, desert to his foes;
      E                           D             A
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,

I'll never, no never, I'll never, no never,
       E              D               A
I'll never, no never, no never, forsake!
