"Thou Passest Through" by Annie Johnson Flint

"When thou passest through the waters"
   Deep the waves may be and cold,
But Jehovah is our refuge,
   And His promise is our hold;
For the Lord Himself hath said it,
   He, the faithful God and true:
"When thou comest to the waters
   Thou shalt not go down, but through."

Seas of sorrow, seas of trial,
   Bitterest anguish, fiercest pain,
Rolling surges of temptation
   Sweeping over heart and brain--
They shall never overflow us
   For we know His Word is true;
All His waves and all His billows
   He will lead us safely through.

Threatening breakers of destruction,
   Doubts insidious undertow,
Shall not sink us, shall not drag us
   Out to ocean depths of woe;
For His promise shall sustain us,
   Praise the Lord, whose Word is true!
We shall not go down, or under,
   For He saith, "Thou passest through."

--from The Family Album, 8th Edition, edited and published by Arthur and Nancy DeMoss, Valley Forge, PA, in the 1960's (I guess)
