I Know My Faith Is Founded
By: Erdman Neumeister

I know my faith is founded
On Jesus Christ, my God and Lord;
And this my faith confessing,
Unmoved I stand on his sure Word.
Manís reason cannot fathom
The truth of God profound;
Who trusts its subtle wisdom
Relies on shifting ground.
Godís Word is all sufficient,
It makes divinely sure,
And trusting in its wisdom,
My faith shall rest secure.

Increase my faith, dear Savior,
For Satan seeks by night and day
To rob me of this treasure
And take my hope of bliss away.
But, Lord, with you beside me,
I shall be undismayed;
And led by your good Spirit,
I shall be unafraid.
Abide with me, O Savior,
A firmer faith bestow;
Then I shall bid defiance
To every evil foe.

In faith, Lord, let me serve you.
When persecution, grief, and pain
From you, Lord, seek to swerve me,
Let me a steadfast trust retain;
And then at my departure,
Lord, take me home to you
Your riches to inherit
As all you said holds true.
In life and death, Lord, keep me
Until your heaven I gain,
Where I by your great mercy
The end of faith attain.
