PRECIOUS PROMISES




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,
You who unto Jesus for refuge have fled?


Fear not, He is with thee, O be not dismayed;
For He is thy God, and will still give thee aid;
Heíll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by His righteous, omnipotent hand.


In every condition, in sickness, in health,
In povertyís vale, or abounding in wealth;
At home and abroad, on the land, on the sea,
As thy days may demand shall thy strength ever be.


When through the deep waters He calls thee to go,
the rivers of grief shall thee overflow;
For He will be with thee in trouble to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.


When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
His grace all sufficient shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee, heís only design
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine.


Eíen down to old age all My people shall prove
My Sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;
And then, when grey hairs shall their temples adorn,
Like Lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne.


The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose,
He will not, He will not, desert to its foes;
That soul, though all hell Should endeavour to shake,
Heíll never, no never, no never forsake.

He will not (He's said it) give up to its foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavour to shake,
He'll neveróno, neveróno, never forsake.
