The Lord will provide. Gen. 22. 14; Matt. 6. 26
J. Newton 104th
Though troubles assail and dangers affright;
Though friends should all fail, and foes all unite,
Yet one thing secures us, whatever betide,
The Scripture assures us, The Lord will provide.
When Satan appears to stop up our path,
And fills 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 seek we ne’er shall obtain;
But when such suggestions 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 known the Saviour’s great name,
In this our strong tower for safety we hide,
The Lord is our power, The Lord will provide.
When life sinks apace, and death is in view,
This word of his grace shall comfort us through;
No fearing or doubting with Christ on our side;
We hope to die shouting, The Lord will provide.
