SUPPLIES IN THE WILDERNESS




When Israel,
by divine command,
The pathless desert trod,
They found, throughout
the barren land,
A sure resource in God.


A cloudy pillar
marked the road,
And screened them
from the heat;
From the hard rock
the water flowed,
And manna was their meat.


Like them, we have
a rest in view,
Secure from hostile powers:
Like them, we pass a desert too,
But Israel's God is ours.


Yes, in this barren wilderness
He is to us the same;
By his appointed means of grace,
As once he was to them.


His word a light
before us spreads,
By which our path we see;
His love, a banner o'er our heads,
From harm preserves us free.


Jesus, the Bread
of life, is given
To be our daily food;
Within us dwells
that spring from heaven,
The Spirit of our God.


Lord, 'tis enough,
we ask no more;
Thy grace around us pours
Its rich and unexhausted store,
And all its joy is ours.


---Alternative verses---


When Israel, by Divine command,
The pathless desert trod,
They found, though 'twas a barren land,
A sure resource in God.


A cloudy pillar mark'd their road,
And screen'd them from the heat;
From the hard rocks their water flow'd,
And manna was their meat.


Like them, we have a rest in view,
Secure from adverse powers ;
Like them, we pass a desert too;
And Israel's God is ours.


Jesus, the Bread of Life, is given
To be our daily food ;
We drink a wondrous stream from Heaven,
'Tis water, wine, and blood.


Lord ! 'tis enough! I ask no more,
These blessings are Divine ;
I envy not the worldling's store,
If Christ and Heaven are mine.
