A wise king scattereth the wicked,
and bringeth the wheel over them.

How Firm a Foundation
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, I will still give thee aid; I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand, upheld by My gracious, omnipotent hand.
“When thro’ the deep waters I call thee to go, the rivers of sorrow shall not overflow; For I will be with thee thy trials to bless, and sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.
“When thro’ fiery trials thy pathway shall lie, My grace, all-sufficient shall be thy supply; The flames shall not hurt thee, I only design thy dross to consume, and thy god to refine.” Amen.
