When troubles assail us
And dangers come nigh,
When earth’s friends forsake us,
To whom shall we fly?
There is a sure refuge
In which to abide,
And that is God’s promise,
The Lord will provide.


The Lord will provide, yes,
The Lord will provide;
His word is a surety,
And He will provide.

Though often temptations
Arise in our path
And fill us with fears,
We can triumph by faith;
When tempted, though weak,
And our faith sorely tried,
There’s one thing to cheer us,
The Lord will provide.


No strength of our own,
Neither goodness we claim,
But trust the dear Sav­ior,
Who for us was slain;
For in Him God’s promise
Was once verified.
And now He’s our Sav­ior;
The Lord did provide.


Though we may have doubts,
And our hope seem in vain,
Through faith we will conquer
And surely obtain;
His promise is certain;
While He’s on our side,
We’ll go on rejoicing,
The Lord will provide.
