The BYU Men’s Chorus was recorded singing this classic hymn during their BYU Men’s Chorus European Tour.

Don’t their voices sound incredible? The whole performance standout with their wonderful voices and the cathedral’s stunning backdrop.

How firm a foundation, ye Saints of the Lord, is laid for your faith in his excellent word!
What more can he say than to you he hath said, who unto the Savior, who unto the Savior,
Who unto the Savior for refuge have fled? In ev’ry condition—in sickness, in health,
In poverty’s vale or abounding in wealth, at home or abroad, on the land or the sea—
As thy days may demand, as thy days may demand,
As thy days may demand, so thy succor shall be.

The original writer of the hymn ‘How Firm A Foundation’ is still not clear and in hymnbooks, it is only mentioned as K but still it is one of the best-loved hymns of many generations.

The song was first published in 1787 in ‘A Selection of Hymns from the Best Authors,’ and has most of its lyrics taken from Bible verses in Isaiah 41:10, Isaiah 43:2, 2 Corinthians 12:9, and Hebrews 13:5.

The song was performed at the death bead of President Andrew Jackson and at the funerals of Robert E. Lee, Theodore Roosevelt, and Woodrow Wilson.

2 Timothy 2:19 “But God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.”
