Fearless Foundation

"Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto Myself" (Exodus 19:4).  "In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?... If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?...  The LORD'S throne is in heaven: His eyes behold, His eyelids try, the children of men" (Psalm 11:1-4).  "For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD" (Proverbs 5:21).  "Jesus Christ is Lord" (Philippians 2:11). 

Like eaglets on the eagle's wings,
The Lord describes His sure salvation. 
As Lord of lords and King of kings,
He has established His foundation. 

Since His foundation is His throne,
Since all His promises are true,
And Jesus Christ is Lord alone,
We ask:  What can the wicked do? 

As Pharaoh was before God's eyes,
And God restrained his wicked ways,
The wrath of man may sometimes rise,
But only that which gives God praise. 

O Lord, on Your foundation sure,
Our fears are vanquished by Your love. 
Though kingdoms fall, You shall endure,
And we shall dwell with You above.
