Today's Hymn: Though Troubles Assail

Though Troubles Assail

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.”

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 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.”

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 –
Almighty His power:
“The Lord will provide.”
