Father, silence the baals
Help when evil thing assails
Shield from bitter angry hearts
Block all blows to tender parts

 Demonstrate to all around
What the meek in Christ have found
Safety from both flood and fire
a grace to lift Thy servant higher

 Or if in furnace walk we must
Teach us all the more to trust
Melting earth to find the ore
The thing that Thou hast made us for

Should our feet some fetter find
Friends should fail or be unkind
Or we as Joseph find the pit
Iron chains in holy writ

 Or should we find a chain of gold
And rise to power from Thy fold
Or find ourselves with riches blessed
See both metals are but a test
