How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
    C♯   F♯       C♯   A♯m    C♯ G♯  G♯7  C♯
Is laid for your faith in His excel-lent word!
 C♯   A♯m         F♯          C♯          G♯
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
    C♯  F♯      C♯ A♯m   C♯/G♯  G♯7      C♯
To you who for refuge to Jes - us hath fled.

"Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
    C♯ F♯       C♯  A♯m       C♯    G♯   G♯7  C♯
For I  am your God, and will still give thee aid;
 C♯   A♯m              F♯            C♯            G♯
I'll strengthen thee, help thee and cause thee to stand,
   C♯  F♯     C♯  A♯m      C♯/G♯ G♯7    C♯
Upheld by My righteous, omni - potent hand."
       C♯               A♯m      C♯          G♯
"When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
    C♯    F♯      C♯     A♯m   C♯ G♯  G♯7   C♯
The ri - vers of sorrow shall not o - ver - flow;
 C♯ A♯m        F♯             C♯          G♯
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
     C♯ F♯   C♯  A♯m      C♯/G♯  G♯7    C♯
And sanctify to thee thy dee - pest distress."
       C♯            A♯m        C♯            G♯
"When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
    C♯     F♯    C♯ A♯m        C♯ G♯  G♯7  C♯
My grace, all sufficient shall be thy sup-ply;
 C♯  A♯m              F♯          C♯     G♯
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
     C♯   F♯     C♯   A♯m     C♯/G♯ G♯7   C♯
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine."
      C♯           A♯m        C♯           G♯
"The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
   C♯   F♯     C♯  A♯m    C♯  G♯ G♯7  C♯
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
 C♯   A♯m              F♯            C♯        G♯
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
      C♯  F♯      C♯   A♯m     C♯/G♯  G♯7    C♯
I'll ne - ver, no ne - ver, no nev - er forsake!"
