Treasure Island

William Cowper

(26 November 1731 – 25 April 1800 / Hertfordshire)

For the Poor

When Hagar found the bottle spent
And wept o'er Ishmael,
A message from the Lord was sent
To guide her to a well.

Should not Elijah's cake and cruse
Convince us at this day,
A gracious God will not refuse
Provisions by the way?

[Hata Bildir]
