6Why should His children then so faint and fear?
7’Twas He that these hard-hearted birds did make
Of6His Elijah constant care to take;
9When he involvéd was in want and sorrow,
They brought him bread and flesh both eve and morrow.7
11Thus God’s affections altereth every hour
12To show to us His infinite love and power.
13Then as thy friends and near relations die,
14To Him alone (to Him) for comfort fly;
15For though thy father and thy mother be
16In no capacity to comfort thee;
17And though successive sorrows and new fears
Makes8thee His altar cover o’er with tears;
19Nay, though thy only love doth thee forsake,
20Yet He will then thee to His mercy take.
21Despair not then my soul, but patient be,
22For He that hears young ravens will hear thee.
