Though troubles assail

Though troubles assail
and dangers affright,
though friends should all fail
and foes all unite,
yet one thing secures us,
however we’re tried:
the Scripture assures us,
‘The Lord will provide.’

2. The birds without barn
or storehouse are fed;
from them let us learn
to trust for our bread:
his saints what is fitting
shall not be denied;
we know it is written:
‘The Lord will provide.’

3. His call we obey
like Abram of old,
not knowing our way,
but faith makes us bold;
for though we are strangers
we have a good guide,
and trust, in all dangers,
‘The Lord will provide.’

4. When Satan appears
and hinders our path
and fills us with fears,
we triumph by faith;
he cannot take from us,
though often has tried,
this heart-cheering promise,
‘The Lord will provide.’

5. 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.’

6. When life sinks apace,
and death is in view,
this word of his grace
shall carry us through:
not fearing or doubting,
with Christ on our side,
we hope to die shouting,
‘The Lord will provide.’
