1. Here I may be weak and poor,
With afflictions to endure;
All about me not a ray of light to see,
Just as He has often done,
For His helpless trusting ones,
God has promised to provide for me.

God has promised to provide for me,
God has promised to provide for me;
All creation is His own,
All my needs to Him are known,
He has promised to provide for me.


2. All my raiment and my food,
And my health and all that's good
Are within His own written guarantee,
God is caring for the poor,
Just as He has done before,
He has promised to provide for me.

3. Mighty men may have control
Of the silver and the gold;
Want and sorrow for the poor there may be,
But the God of Heaven reigns,
And His promise is the same,
And I know He will provide for me.


4. Ancient Israel heard His voice,
How the people did rejoice,
When He led them safely through the mighty sea;
In the wilderness they knew,
What the living God can do;
He's the one that doth provide for me.

5. When they hadn't any bread,
Good old Moses knelt and prayed;
And the God who gives so plentiful and free
Sent the precious Manna down,
Israel saw it on the ground,
Twas the God who now provides for me.
