Come, children of Zion, and help me to sing,
Loud anthems of praises to Jesus our King;
Whose life was once given our souls to redeem,
And bring us to heaven to dwell there with him.
1. 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 hath fled!
2. In every condition—in sickness, in health,
In poverty's vale, or abounding in wealth;
At home and abroad, pmn the land, on the sea,
"As thy days may demand, shall thy strength ever be.
3. "Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed!
"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."
