The Olney Hymns

The words of John Newton & William Cowper with a fresh and new musical style

The Lord Will Provide

 

Though troubles assail us and dangers affright

Though friends should all fail us and foes all unite

Yet one thing secures us whatever betide

The promise assures us the Lord will provide

 

The birds without garner or storehouse are fed

From them let us learn to trust God for our bread

His saints what is fitting shall ne’er be denied

So long as it’s written the Lord will provide

 

When Satan assails to stop up our path

And courage all fails us, 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 shall never obtain

But when such suggestions our graces have tried

This answers all questions the Lord will provide

 

No strength of our own and no goodness we claim

Yet since we have known the saviors great name

And 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

The 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
