Hymn 116
1. Dismiss your anxious care,
O all ye sons of need!
Consider how the ravens are
By heav'nly bounty fed.

2. Jehovah will provide
Your clothing and your food:
Think how the ravens are supplied;
And trust a faithful God.

3. You have no present store
Laid up for future needs;
Yet He will not forget the poor,
Who hungry ravens feeds.

4. Your Father will bestow
On you your daily bread;
The ravens neither reap nor sow,
And yet are richly fed.

5. How mean these creatures are!
Yet God supplies their wants;
And he that doth for ravens care,
Will not forget his saints.

6. For you the Saviour died;
Heav'n is prepared for you:
He that for ravens doth provide,
Will feed his children too.

7. If Satan should suggest,
God will not hear your cry,
He hears young ravens in their nest,
And answers from the sky.

8. His gracious word believe,
Forget your long complaint;
If God doth food to ravens give,
He will not let you faint.
