Norton Hall Band “How Firm A Foundation”

Posted by


How firm a foundation you saints of the Lord Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word What more can He say than to you He has said To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled? “Fear not, I am with you, O be not dismayed For I am your God, and will still give you aid I’ll strengthen you, help you,
and cause you to stand Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.” “When through the deep waters I call you to go The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow For I will be with you,
your troubles to bless And sanctify to you your deepest distress.” “When through fiery trials
your pathway shall lie My grace, all sufficient, shall be your supply The flame shall not hurt you,
I only design Your dross to consume, and your gold to refine.” “The soul that on Jesus has 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!” Oh, He will never forsake you Though trials may come That soul, though all hell
should endeavor to shake, I’ll never, no never, no never forsake!”

  1. And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall. Helamen 5:12

  2. Loved it til the wohooohooo . Couldn’t it just be plain and beautifully sung, with propper words all the way through?

  3. This is one of the most uplifting and encouraging hymns I have ever heard. This rendition of it is done extremely well by Norton Hall and I just want you guys to know how much it exhorts me to be able to listen to the scriptures sung whenever I'm feeling downcast. I really appreciate my Brothers and Sisters at Southern Seminary! Sincerely, a student at Indiana University.

  4. Completely butchered a classic hymn of the faith. This “band” should be ashamed of themselves. I don’t mind contemporary styles, but this particular style for this song makes a mockery of the message.

  5. How firm a foundation
    You saints of the Lord
    Is laid for your faith in
    His excellent Word
    What more can He say
    Than to you He has said
    To you who for refuge
    To Jesus have fled
    To you who for refuge
    To Jesus have fled

    VERSE 2
    Fear not I am with you
    Oh be not dismayed
    For I am your God
    And will still give you aid
    I’ll strengthen you help you
    And cause you to stand
    Upheld by My righteous
    Omnipotent hand
    Upheld by My righteous
    Omnipotent hand

    VERSE 3
    When through the deep waters
    I call you to go
    The rivers of sorrow
    Shall not overflow
    For I will be with you
    Your troubles to bless
    And sanctify to you
    Your deepest distress
    And sanctify to you
    Your deepest distress

    VERSE 4
    When through fiery trials
    Your pathway shall lie
    My grace all-sufficient
    Shall be your supply
    The flame shall not hurt you
    I only design
    Your dross to consume and
    Your gold to refine
    Your dross to consume and
    Your gold to refine

    VERSE 5
    The soul that on Jesus
    Has 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’ll never no never
    No never forsake
