When God’s own children stand in need,
His goodness will provide supplies;
Thus, when Elijah faints for bread,
A raven to his succour flies.
At God’s command, with speedy wings,
The hungry bird resigns its prey,
And to the fainting prophet brings
The needful portion day by day.
This wonder has been oft renewed;
And saints by sweet experience find
Their evils overruled for good,
And foes to friendly deeds inclined.
