How firm a foundation

     A♯         Gm         A♯            E♯
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
    A♯   D♯       A♯   Gm     A♯ E♯  E♯7  A♯
Is laid for your faith in His excel-lent word!
 A♯   Gm          D♯          A♯          E♯
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
    A♯  D♯      A♯ Gm    A♯/E♯  E♯7      A♯
To you who for refuge to Jes - us hath fled.
       A♯        Gm          A♯         E♯
"Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
    A♯ D♯       A♯  Gm        A♯    E♯   E♯7  A♯
For I  am your God, and will still give thee aid;
 A♯   Gm               D♯            A♯            E♯
I'll strengthen thee, help thee and cause thee to stand,
   A♯  D♯     A♯  Gm       A♯/E♯ E♯7    A♯
Upheld by My righteous, omni - potent hand."
       A♯               Gm       A♯          E♯
"When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
    A♯    D♯      A♯     Gm    A♯ E♯  E♯7   A♯
The ri - vers of sorrow shall not o - ver - flow;
 A♯ Gm         D♯             A♯          E♯
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
     A♯ D♯   A♯  Gm       A♯/E♯  E♯7    A♯
And sanctify to thee thy dee - pest distress."
       A♯            Gm         A♯            E♯
"When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
    A♯     D♯    A♯ Gm         A♯ E♯  E♯7  A♯
My grace, all sufficient shall be thy sup-ply;
 A♯  Gm               D♯          A♯     E♯
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
     A♯   D♯     A♯   Gm      A♯/E♯ E♯7   A♯
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine."
      A♯           Gm         A♯           E♯
"The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
   A♯   D♯     A♯  Gm     A♯  E♯ E♯7  A♯
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
 A♯   Gm               D♯            A♯        E♯
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
      A♯  D♯      A♯   Gm      A♯/E♯  E♯7    A♯
I'll ne - ver, no ne - ver, no nev - er forsake!"
