Hymn/Song Information

His providence for needy souls shall due




His providence for needy souls
shall due supplies prepare;
And over their defenseless 1Ives
shall watch with tender care,


He shall preserve and keep their souls
from fraud and rapine free,
And in his sight their guiltless blood
of mighty price shall be.


Therefore shall God his life and reign
to many years extend,
While eastern princes tribute pay,
and golden presents send.


For him shall constant pray'rs be made
through all his prosp'rous days;
His just dominion shall afford
a lasting theme of praise.


Of useful grain, through all the land,
great plenty shall appear;
A handful sown on mountain tops
a mighty crop shall bear.


Its fruit, like cedars shook by winds,
a rattling noise shall yield;
The city too shall thrive, and vie
for plenty with the field.


The mem'ry of his glorious Name
through endless years shall ruin;
His spotless fame shall shine as bright
and lasting as the sun.


In him the nations of the world
shall be completely blessed,
And his unbounded happiness
by ev'ry tongue confessed.


Then blessed be God, the mighty Lord,
the God whom Israel fears;
Who only wondrous in his works .
beyond compare appears.


Let earth be with his glory filled,
and ever bless his Name;
Whilst to his praise the list'ning world
their glad assent proclaim.
