Verse Words by John Newton

Chorus Words and Music by Matt MacGregor

Verse 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.

Verse 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.

Chorus:
The Lord provides;
On this we can rely.
The Lord provides;
He always by our side.

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

Verse 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,
The Lord is our power,
The Lord will provide.

Chorus

Verse 5:
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.

Verse 6:
When life sinks apace
And death is in view,
This 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.
