1 How firm a foundation you saints of the Lord,
is laid for your faith in Christ Jesus, the Word!
What more can God say than to you has been said,
to you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?
2 ""Fear not, I am with you, O be not dismayed,
for I am your God, and will still give you aid;
I'll strengthen you, help you, and cause you to stand,
upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.
3 ""When through the deep waters I call you to go,
the rivers of woe shall not you overflow,
for I will be with you your troubles to bless,
and sanctify to you your deepest distress.
4 ""The soul that on Jesus still leans for repose
I will not, I will not desert to its foes;
that soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I'll never, no, never, no never forsake!""
