HOW FIRM A FOUNDATION
(Anonymous: 18th/19th century hymnals)

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,
To you, who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

"Fear not, I am with Thee, O be not dismayed,
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand."

"The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I'll never, no, never, no, never forsake!"

I KNOW WHOM I HAVE BELIEVED
(Whittle/McGranahan)
(Based on 2 Timothy 1:12)

I know not why God's wondrous grace
To me He hath made known,
Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love
Redeemed me for His own,

But, "I know Whom I have believèd,
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I've committed
Unto Him against that day."

I know not how this saving faith
To me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His Word
Wrought peace within my heart,

But, "I know Whom I have believèd,
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I've committed
Unto Him against that day."
