Provisions by the way?

3. His saints and servants shall be fed,
The promise is secure;
Bread shall be given them, He has said,
Their water shall be sure.

4. Repasts far richer they shall prove
Than all earth’s dainties are;
’Tis sweet to taste a Savior’s love,
Though in the meanest fare.

5. To Jesus then your trouble bring,
Nor murmur at your lot;
While you art poor, and He is king,
You shall not be forgot.
