I took you through the fire and it burnt you
I took you through the waters and you got drowned
I took you through tests and trials and you couldn’t stand a day
Because your eyes were off of me
You couldn’t see my outstretched hand through it all
Faith is the link between where you are and where I am
Believe I’m with you through it all
And you will pass through the fire but it won’t burn you
Through the waters and you won’t be drowned
Through the tests and trials and come out victorious
Because I am with you.

But now, this is what the Lord says—
he who created you, Jacob,
he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
