FIXED ON THIS GROUND I WILL REMAIN
(Tune: Faith Of Our Fathers #183 88.88.88)]
Now I have found the ground, wherein
Sure my soul's anchor may remain:
The wounds of Jesus for my sin
Before the world's foundation slain;
Whose mercy shall unshaken stay
When heav'n and earth have fled away.
O love, amazing love is this:
My sins my Lord has put away!
Robed in Christ's perfect righteousness
No charge of sin on me can lay,
While Jesus' blood, through earth and skies,
Mercy, free, boundless mercy cries!
By faith I look to Christ Jesus,
My Lord, in whom my soul finds rest.
To Him I flee when hell assails,
And lean upon my Savior's breast.
Away, sad doubt and anxious fear!
Mercy abundant I find here!
Though waves and storms go o'er my head,
Though strength, and health, and friends be gone,
Though joys be withered all, and dead,
Though every comfort be withdrawn,
Steadfast on this my soul relies,
Father, Your mercy never dies!
Fixed on this ground I will remain,
Though my heart fail and flesh decay;
This anchor shall my soul sustain,
When earth's foundations melt away.
God's sov'reign mercy I'll then prove,
Loved with an everlasting love!
