In some way or other the Lord will provide

1
In some way or other the Lord will provide.
It may not be my way, it may not be thy way;
And yet in His own way, “the Lord will provide.”
  Then we’ll trust in the Lord, and He will provide;
  Yes, we’ll trust in the Lord, and He will provide.
2
At some time or other the Lord will provide:
It may not be my time, it may not be thy time;
And yet in His own time, “the Lord will provide.”
3
Despond then no longer; the Lord will provide:
And this be the token—no word He hath spoken
Was ever yet broken: “The Lord will provide.”
4
March on then right boldly: the sea shall divide;
The pathway made glorious, with shoutings victorious,
We’ll join in the chorus, “The Lord will provide.”

"A gospel song, now mostly forgotten, delighted Christians hundreds of years ago. Often sung to the strains of a fiddle, it boasted of God's unique methods in meeting the needs of His children" This is a quote found int the book called the "Red Sea Rules, 10 God given strategies for difficult times" by Robert Morgan. An amazing book and an amazing song that both shall not be forgotten.
