How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
    G♭   C♭       G♭   E♭m    G♭ D♭  D♭7  G♭
Is laid for your faith in His excel-lent word!
 G♭   E♭m         C♭          G♭          D♭
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
    G♭  C♭      G♭ E♭m   G♭/D♭  D♭7      G♭
To you who for refuge to Jes - us hath fled.
       G♭        E♭m         G♭         D♭
"Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
    G♭ C♭       G♭  E♭m       G♭    D♭   D♭7  G♭
For I  am your God, and will still give thee aid;
 G♭   E♭m              C♭            G♭            D♭
I'll strengthen thee, help thee and cause thee to stand,
   G♭  C♭     G♭  E♭m      G♭/D♭ D♭7    G♭
Upheld by My righteous, omni - potent hand."
       G♭               E♭m      G♭          D♭
"When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
    G♭    C♭      G♭     E♭m   G♭ D♭  D♭7   G♭
The ri - vers of sorrow shall not o - ver - flow;
 G♭ E♭m        C♭             G♭          D♭
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
     G♭ C♭   G♭  E♭m      G♭/D♭  D♭7    G♭
And sanctify to thee thy dee - pest distress."
       G♭            E♭m        G♭            D♭
"When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
    G♭     C♭    G♭ E♭m        G♭ D♭  D♭7  G♭
My grace, all sufficient shall be thy sup-ply;
 G♭  E♭m              C♭          G♭     D♭
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
     G♭   C♭     G♭   E♭m     G♭/D♭ D♭7   G♭
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine."
      G♭           E♭m        G♭           D♭
"The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
   G♭   C♭     G♭  E♭m    G♭  D♭ D♭7  G♭
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
 G♭   E♭m              C♭            G♭        D♭
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
      G♭  C♭      G♭   E♭m     G♭/D♭  D♭7    G♭
I'll ne - ver, no ne - ver, no nev - er forsake!"
