To Thy goodness flee;

rest, When the heavy-laden cast

All their load on Thee;
When the troubled, seeking peace,

On Thy name shall call;
When the sinner, seeking life,

At Thy feet shall fall:
Hear then in love, O Lord, the cry

In heaven, Thy dwelling-place on high. 2 When the worldling, sick at heart,

Lifts his soul above;
When the prodigal looks back

To his Father's love;
When the proud man, in his pride,

Stoops to seek Thy face;
When the burdened brings his guilt

To Thy throne of grace:

3 When the stranger asks a home,

All his toils to end;
When the hungry craveth food,

And the poor a friend,
When the sailor on the wave

Bows the fervent knee;
When the soldier on the field

Lifts his heart to Thee:
4 When the man of toil and care

In the city crowd;
When the shepherd on the moor

Names the name of God;
When the learned and the high,

Tired of earthly fame,
Upon higher joys intent,
Name the blessèd name:

Horatius Bonar, 1868

1 COW firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord, ,

What more can Ile say than to you He hath said,

You who unto Jesus for refuge have fled?
2 "Fear not, I am with thee, () be not dismayed;

I, 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.
3 "When through the deep waters I call thee to go,

The rivers of woe shall not thee overflow;
For I will be with thee thy troubles to bless,

And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.
4 "When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,

My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply,
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design

Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.
5 "E'en down to old age all My people shall prove

My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;
And when hoary hairs shall their temples adorn,

Like lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne.
6 “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.

K”in Rippon's Selection, 1787
