Hymn: TLH 385, st. 1-4: Now I Have the Firm Foundation Organ Audio

1. Now I have found the firm foundation 
Which holds mine anchor ever sure; 
‘Twas laid before the world’s creation 
In Christ my Savior’s wounds secure; 
Foundation which unmoved shall stay 
When heaven and earth will pass away. 

2. It is that mercy never ending, 
Which human wisdom far transcends, 
Of Him who, loving arms extending, 
To wretched sinners condescends; 
Whose heart with pity still doth break 
Whether we seek Him or forsake. 

3. Our ruin God hath not intended, 
For our salvation He hath yearned; 
For this His Son to earth descended 
And then to heaven again returned; 
For this so patient evermore 
He knocketh at our heart’s closed door. 

4. O depth of love, to me revealing 
The sea where my sins disappear! 
In Christ my wounds find perfect healing, 
There is no condemnation here; 
For Jesus’ blood through earth and skies 
Forever “Mercy! Mercy!” cries.
