The Lord Will Provide


(Genesis, xxii.14)

 The saints should never be dismay'd,
Nor sink in hopeless fear; 
For when they least expect His aid, 
The Saviour will appear.
This Abraham found: he raised the knife; 
God saw, and said, "Forbear! 
Yon ram shall yield his meaner life; 
Behold the victim there." 
Once David seem'd Saul's certain prey;
 But hark! the foe's at hand; 
Saul turns his arms another way, 
To save the invaded land. 
When Jonah sunk beneath the wave, 
He thought to rise no more;
 But God prepared a fish to save, 
And bear him to the shore. 
Blest proofs of power and grace divine, 
That meet us in His word! 
May every deep-felt care of mine 
Be trusted with the Lord. 
Wait for His seasonable aid, 
And though it tarry, wait: 
The promise may be long delay'd, 
But cannot come too late. 

William Cowper, Olney Hymns
