How Firm a Foundation -ghf268.mid - [Play Midi]
  1. How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord
    Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!
    What more can He say than to you He hath said
    To you, who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

  2. "Fear not, I am with thee - O be not dismayed,
    For I am thy God, I will still give thee aid;
    I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
    Upheld by my gracious, omnipotent hand.

  3. "When thru the deep waters I call thee to go,
    The rivers of woe shall not thee overflow;
    For I will be with thee thy troubles to bless,
    And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.

  4. "When thru fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
    My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply;
    The flame shall not hurt thee - I only design
    Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine.

  5. "The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose
    I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
    That soul, tho all hell should endeavor to shake,
    I'll never no, never no, never forsake!"
