Jehovah Jireh, the Lord Will Provide

January 9, 2011

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 deepfelt 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
