Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

69. 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;
Tho' 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 thru 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,
Thru praise or blame,
Thru 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 thru the gloom,
He'll lead me home,
My heav'nly Father watches over me. [Refrain]
