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

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