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

    F♯ B        F♯  D♯m       F♯    C♯   C♯7  F♯
For I  am your God, and will still give thee aid;
 F♯   D♯m              B             F♯            C♯
I'll strengthen thee, help thee and cause thee to stand,

Upheld by My righteous, omni - potent hand."

"When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
    F♯    B       F♯     D♯m   F♯ C♯  C♯7   F♯
The ri - vers of sorrow shall not o - ver - flow;
 F♯ D♯m        B              F♯          C♯
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
     F♯ B    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♯     B     F♯ D♯m        F♯ C♯  C♯7  F♯
My grace, all sufficient shall be thy sup-ply;
 F♯  D♯m              B           F♯     C♯
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
     F♯   B      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♯   B      F♯  D♯m    F♯  C♯ C♯7  F♯
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
 F♯   D♯m              B             F♯        C♯
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
      F♯  B       F♯   D♯m     F♯/C♯  C♯7    F♯
I'll ne - ver, no ne - ver, no nev - er forsake!"
