Hymn – How Firm A Foundation chords

G Em G DHow firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
G C G Em G D D7 GIs laid for your faith in His excellent word!
G Em C G DWhat more can He say than to you He hath said,
G C G Em G/D D7 GTo you who for refuge to Jesus hath fled.
G Em G D"Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
G C G Em G D D7 GFor I am your God, and will still give thee aid;
G Em C G DI'll strengthen thee, help thee and cause thee to stand,
G C G Em G/D D7 GUpheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand."
G Em G D"When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
G C G Em G D D7 GThe rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
G Em C G DFor I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
G C G Em G/D D7 GAnd sanctify to thee thy deepest distress."
G Em G D"When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
G C G Em G D D7 GMy grace, all sufficient shall be thy supply;
G Em C G DThe flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
G C G Em G/D D7 GThy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine."
G Em G D"The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
G C G Em G D D7 GI will not, I will not desert to his foes;
G Em C G DThat soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
G C G Em G/D D7 GI'll never, no never, no never forsake!"
