His master taken from his head, Elisha saw him go;
His master taken from his head, Elisha saw him go; And in desponding accents said, "Ah, what must Israel do?"
But he forgot the Lord, who lifts The beggar to the throne; Nor knew that all Elijah's gifts Would soon be made his own.
What! when a Paul has run his course, Or when Apollos dies, Is Israel left without resource? And have we no supplies?
Yes, while the dear Redeemer lives, We have a boundless store, And shall be fed with what he gives, Who lives for evermore.
~ William Cowper
