William Cowper | Short Famous Poems and Poets

by William Cowper

On the Death of a Minister

 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.
