this is by far one of my favorite hymns Capo 1, all chords are relative to capo A How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord, E D A Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word! E D A What more can He say than to you He hath said Who unto the Savior,Who unto the Savior, E D A Who unto the Savior, for refuge have fled? In every condition, -- in sickness, in health, E D A In poverty's vale, or abounding in wealth, E D A At home and abroad, on the land, or the sea, -- As thy days may demand, As thy days may demand, E D A As thy days may demand, So thy succor shall be. Fear not, I am with thee, oh, be not dismayed, E D A For I am thy God and will still give thee aid; E D A I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand, Upheld by My righteous, Upheld by My righteous, E D A Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand. When through the deep waters I call thee to go, E D A The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow; E D A For I will be with thee thy troubles to bless And sanctify to thee, And sanctify to thee, E D A And sanctify to thee, thy deepest distress. When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie, E D A My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply. E D A The flames shall not hurt thee; I only design Thy dross to consume, Thy dross to consume, E D A Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine. E'en down to old age all My people shall prove E D A My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love; E D A And when gray hairs shall their temples adorn, Like lambs they shall still, Like lambs they shall still, E D A Like lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne. The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose E D A I will not, I cannot, desert to his foes; E D A That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake, I'll never, no never, I'll never, no never, E D A I'll never, no never, no never, forsake!
