579. My Heavenly Father Watches over Me

1 I trust in God wherever I may be,
Upon the land or on the rolling sea;
For come what may from day to day,
My heav'nly Father watches over me.

Refrain:
I trust in God, I know he cares for me;
On mountain bleak or on the stormy sea;
Though billows roll, he keeps my soul,
My heav'nly Father watches over me.

2 He makes the rose an object of his care,
He guides the eagle through the pathless air;
And surely he remembers me,
My heav'nly Father watches over me. [Refrain]

3 I trust in God, for, in the lion's den,
On battlefield, or in the prison pen;
Through praise or blame, through flood or flame,
My heav'nly Father watches over me. [Refrain]

4 The valley may be dark, the shadows deep,
But oh, the shepherd guards his lonely sheep;
And through the gloom, he'll lead me home,
My heav'nly Father watches over me. [Refrain]
