Lyrics

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.

Refrain

Then, we’ll trust in the Lord,
And He will provide;
Yes, we’ll trust in the Lord,
And He will provide.

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

March on then right boldly; the sea shall divide,
The pathway made glorious,
With shoutings victorious
We’ll join in the chorus,
The Lord will provide.
