Lyrics

Verse 1
Tho’ troubles assail, and dangers affright;
Tho’ friends should all fail, and foes all unite,
Yet one tings secures us, whatever betide,
The promise assures us, – The Lord will provide.

Chorus
Yes, I will rejoice, rejoice in the Lord;
Yes, I will rejoice, rejoice in the Lord;
Yes, I will rejoice, rejoice in the Lord;
Will joy in the God of my salvation.

Verse 2
The birds, without barn or storehouse are fed;
From them let us learn to trust for our bread:
His saints what is fitting shall ne’er be denied,
So long as ’tis written, – The Lord will provide.

Verse 3
When Satan appears to stop up our path,
And fills us with fears we triumph by faith;
He can not take from us, (tho’ oft he has tried)
The heart-cheering promise, – The Lord will provide.

Verse 4
He tells me we’re weak, – our hope is in vain;
The good that we seek we ne’er shall obtain;
But when such suggestions our graces have tried,
This answers all questions, – The Lord will provide.
