Subject: Lyr Add: The Lord Will Provide (Newton & Cowper)
From: Joe Offer
Date: 06 Nov 10 - 02:53 AM

We didn't have anything on this song, which is part of Jon Boden's A FolkSong a Day project.

"The Lord will provide" From Olney Hymns by John Newton & William Cowper Sing to the tune of "O Worship the King, All Glorious Above"

(Newton & Cowper)

1 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.

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 ne'er be deny'd,
So long as 'tis written,
The Lord will provide.

3 We may, like the ships,
By tempests be tost
On perilous deeps,
But cannot be lost:
Though Satan enrages
The wind and the tide,
The promise engages,
The Lord will provide.

4 His call we obey,
Like Abra'm 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.

5 When Satan appears
To stop up our path,
And fill us with fears,
We triumph by faith:
He cannot take from us,
Though oft he has try'd,
This heart-cheering promise,
The Lord will provide.

6 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 ply'd,
This answers all questions,
The Lord will provide.

7 No strength of our own,
Or goodness, we claim;
Yet since we have known
The Savior's great name,
In this our strong tow'r
For safety we hide,
The Lord is our pow'r,
The Lord will provide.

8 When life sinks apace,
And death is in view,
This word of his grace
Shall comfort us through;
No fearing nor doubting
With Christ on our side,
We hope to die shouting,
The Lord will provide.
