 1How firm a foundation
 2
 3.1
 4How firm a foundation,
 5ye saints of the Lord,
 6is laid for your faith
 7in His excellent word;
 8what more can He say
 9than to you He hath said,
10you who unto Jesus
11for refuge have fled?
12
13.2
14Fear not, He is with thee,
15O be not dismayed;
16for he is thy God,
17and will still give thee aid:
18He'll strengthen thee, help thee,
19and cause thee to stand,
20upheld by his righteous,
21omnipotent hand.
22
23.3
24In every condition,
25in sickness, in health,
26in poverty's vale,
27or abounding in wealth;
28at home and abroad,
29on the land, on the sea,
30as thy days may demand
31shall thy strength ever be.
32
33.4
34When through the deep waters
35He calls thee to go,
36the rivers of grief
37shall not thee overflow;
38for he will be with thee
39in trouble to bless,
40and sanctify to thee 
41thy deepest distress.
42 
43.5
44When through fiery trials
45thy pathway shall lie,
46His grace all-sufficient
47shall be thy supply;
48the flame shall not hurt thee,
49His only design
50thy dross to consume
51and thy gold to refine.
52
53.6
54The soul that on Jesus
55has leaned for repose
56He will not, He will not,
57desert to its foes;
58that soul, though all hell
59should endeavour to shake,
60He'll never, no never,
61no never forsake.
62.
