Oh, la­den and wea­ry,
Who strive for the right,
Though earth be all drea­ry,
Still trust in His might;
Nor fear for the mor­row,
That care will be­tide—
In sick­ness and sor­row,
The Lord will pro­vide.


The Lord will pro­vide,
The Lord will pro­vide,
In sick­ness or sor­row,
The Lord will pro­vide.

Though friends look but cold­ly,
And speak not to cheer,
Act firm­ly, speak bold­ly,
A help­er is near—
An ar­mor for shield­ing,
A ban­ner for guide;
Be faith­ful, un­yield­ing—
The Lord will pro­vide.


The bat­tle once ov­er,
The tem­pest all past,
The face of Je­ho­vah
Will com­fort at last.
Earth’s cares, and its sad­ness,
But short­ly can hide
Heav’n’s glo­ry and glad­ness—
The Lord will pro­vide.
