Hymn: “Though Troubles Assail” by John Newton

02.13 ThoughTroublesAssail

Though troubles assail
and dangers affright,
Though friends should all fail
And foes all unite,
Yet one thing secures us,
Whatever betide:
The promise assures us,
“The Lord will provide.”

The birds, without barn
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 ’tis written,
“The Lord will provide.”

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.”

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,
The 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 graces have tried,
This answers all questions:
“The Lord will provide.”

No strength of our own
Nor goodness we claim;
Our trust is all thrown
On Jesus’ 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,
The word of His grace
Shall comfort us through.
Not fearing or doubting,
With Christ on our side,
We hope to die shouting,
“The Lord will provide.”
