Hymn/Song Information

Manna to Israel well supplied The want




Manna to Israel well supplied
The want of other bread;
While God is able to provide,
His people shall be fed.


Thus though the corn and wine should fail,
And creature-streams be dry;
The prayer of faith will still prevail,
For blessings from on high.


Of his kind care how sweet a proof!
It suited every taste;
Who gathered most, had just enough,
Enough, who gathered least.


'Tis thus our gracious Lord provides
Our comforts and our cares;
His own unerring hand provides,
And gives us each our shares.


He knows how much the weak can bear,
And helps them when they cry;
The strongest have no strength to spare,
For such he'll strongly try.


Daily they saw the Manna come,
And cover all the ground;
But what they tried to keep at home,
Corrupted soon was found.


Vain their attempt to store it up,
This was to tempt the Lord;
Israel must live by faith and hope,
And not upon a hoard.
