Jehovah-Jireh. The Lord Will Provide

Standard
    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.       by William Cowper
