Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.13

First Line: 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.

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 denied,
So long as 'tis 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 ail dangers:
The Lord will provide.

4 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,
AlmightyHis power:
The Lord will provide.'
