To you who for refuge to Jes - us hath fled.

Upheld by My righteous, omni - potent hand."

    B     E       B      G♯m   B  F♯  F♯7   B
The ri - vers of sorrow shall not o - ver - flow;

For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,

And sanctify to thee thy dee - pest distress."

My grace, all sufficient shall be thy sup-ply;
 B   G♯m              E           B      F♯
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
     B    E      B    G♯m     B/F♯ F♯7   B
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine."

"The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
   B    E      B   G♯m    B   F♯ F♯7  B
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
 B    G♯m              E             B         F♯
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
      B   E       B    G♯m     B/F♯  F♯7    B
I'll ne - ver, no ne - ver, no nev - er forsake!"
