eXTReMe Tracker


Listen to this song using Rhapsody (Free for 14 Days)

By the poor widow's oil and meal


By the poor widows oil and meal
Elijah was sustained;
Though small the stock it lasted well,
For God the store maintained.

It seemed as if from day to day,
They were to eat and die;
But still, though in a secret way,
He sent a fresh supply.

Thus to His poor He still will give
Just for the present hour;
But for tomorrow they must live
Upon His word and power.

No barn or storehouse they possess
On which they can depend;
Yet have no cause to fear distress,
For Jesus is their Friend.

Then let not doubts your mind assail,
Remember, God has said,
The cruse and barrel shall not fail;
My people shall be fed.

And thus though faint it often seems,
He keeps their grace alive;
Supplied by His refreshing streams,
Their dying hopes revive.

Though in ourselves we have no stock,
The Lord is nigh to save;
His door flies open when we knock,
And tis but ask and have.
