The Lord Will Provide

Though troubles

And dangers affright,

Though friends should all

And foes all unite;

Yet one thing secures us,

Whatever betide,

The scripture assures us,

The Lord will provide.

The birds without

Or storehouse are fed,

From them let us

To trust for our bread:

His saints, what is fitting,

Shall ne'er he denied,

So long as 'tis written,

The Lord will provide.

We may, like the ships,

By tempest be

On perilous deeps,

But cannot be lost.

Though Satan

The wind and the tide,

The promise engages,

The Lord will provide.

His call we

Like Abram of old,

Not knowing our way,

But faith makes us bold;

For though we are

We have a good Guide,

And trust in all dangers,

The Lord will provide.

When Satan

To stop up our path,

And fill us with fears,

We triumph by faith;

He cannot take from us,

Though oft he has tried,

This heart-cheering promise,

The Lord will provide.

He tells us we're weak,

Our hope is in vain,

The good that we

We ne'er shall obtain,

But when such

Our spirits have plied,

This answers all questions,

The Lord will provide.

No strength of our own,

Or goodness we claim,

Yet since we have

The Saviour's great name;

In this our strong

For safety we hide,

The Lord is our power,

The Lord will provide.

When life sinks

And death is in view,

This word of his

Shall comfort us through:

No fearing or

With Christ on our side,

We hope to die shouting,

The Lord will provide.
