FOR THE POOR




When Hagar found the bottle spent,
And wept o’er Ishmael,
A message from the Lord was sent
To guide her to a well.


Should not Elijah’s cake and cruse
Convince us at this day,
A gracious God will not refuse
Provisions by the way?


His saints and servants shall be fed,
The promise is secure;
“Bread shall be given them,”
He has said,
“Their water shall be sure.”


Repasts far richer they shall prove
Than all earth’s dainties are;
’Tis sweet to taste a Savior’s love,
Though in the meanest fare.


To Jesus then your trouble bring,
Nor murmur at your lot;
While you art poor, and He is King,
You shall not be forgot.
