How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
    B♯   E♯       B♯   Am     B♯ G   G7   B♯
Is laid for your faith in His excel-lent word!
 B♯   Am          E♯          B♯          G
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
    B♯  E♯      B♯ Am    B♯/G   G7       B♯
To you who for refuge to Jes - us hath fled.

"Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
    B♯ E♯       B♯  Am        B♯    G    G7   B♯
For I  am your God, and will still give thee aid;
 B♯   Am               E♯            B♯            G
I'll strengthen thee, help thee and cause thee to stand,
   B♯  E♯     B♯  Am       B♯/G  G7     B♯
Upheld by My righteous, omni - potent hand."
       B♯               Am       B♯          G
"When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
    B♯    E♯      B♯     Am    B♯ G   G7    B♯
The ri - vers of sorrow shall not o - ver - flow;
 B♯ Am         E♯             B♯          G
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
     B♯ E♯   B♯  Am       B♯/G   G7     B♯
And sanctify to thee thy dee - pest distress."
       B♯            Am         B♯            G
"When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
    B♯     E♯    B♯ Am         B♯ G   G7   B♯
My grace, all sufficient shall be thy sup-ply;
 B♯  Am               E♯          B♯     G
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
     B♯   E♯     B♯   Am      B♯/G  G7    B♯
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine."
      B♯           Am         B♯           G
"The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
   B♯   E♯     B♯  Am     B♯  G  G7   B♯
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
 B♯   Am               E♯            B♯        G
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
      B♯  E♯      B♯   Am      B♯/G   G7     B♯
I'll ne - ver, no ne - ver, no nev - er forsake!"
