Is laid for your faith in His excel-lent word!
 F♭   D♭m         A           F♭          C♭
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
    F♭  A       F♭ D♭m   F♭/C♭  C♭7      F♭
To you who for refuge to Jes - us hath fled.

For I  am your God, and will still give thee aid;
 F♭   D♭m              A             F♭            C♭
I'll strengthen thee, help thee and cause thee to stand,
   F♭  A      F♭  D♭m      F♭/C♭ C♭7    F♭
Upheld by My righteous, omni - potent hand."

"When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
    F♭    A       F♭     D♭m   F♭ C♭  C♭7   F♭
The ri - vers of sorrow shall not o - ver - flow;
 F♭ D♭m        A              F♭          C♭
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
     F♭ A    F♭  D♭m      F♭/C♭  C♭7    F♭
And sanctify to thee thy dee - pest distress."
       F♭            D♭m        F♭            C♭
"When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
    F♭     A     F♭ D♭m        F♭ C♭  C♭7  F♭
My grace, all sufficient shall be thy sup-ply;
 F♭  D♭m              A           F♭     C♭
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
     F♭   A      F♭   D♭m     F♭/C♭ C♭7   F♭
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine."
      F♭           D♭m        F♭           C♭
"The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
   F♭   A      F♭  D♭m    F♭  C♭ C♭7  F♭
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
 F♭   D♭m              A             F♭        C♭
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
      F♭  A       F♭   D♭m     F♭/C♭  C♭7    F♭
I'll ne - ver, no ne - ver, no nev - er forsake!"
