Representative Text

1 In some way or other the Lord will provide,
It may not be my way,
It may not be thy way,
And yet in his own way, "the Lord will provide."

2 At some time or other the Lord will provide;
It may not be my time,
It may not be thy time,
And yet in his own time, "The Lord will provide."

3 Despond then no longer, the Lord will provide;
And this be the token
No word he hath spoken
Was ever yet broken, "the Lord will provide."

4 March on, then, right boldly; the sea shall divide;
The path shall be glorious;
With shoutings victorious
We'll join in the chorus, "the Lord will provide."
