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."

Refrain:
Then we'll trust in the Lord,
And he will provide;
Yes, we'll trust in the Lord,
And he 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." [Refrain]

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." [Refrain]

4 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." [Refrain]
