Fear not, O child of mine

Representative Text

1 Fear not, O child of mine, I am thy God,
I will take care of thee;
O’er thee my care like the ocean is broad,
I will take care, take care of thee.

Refrain:
I will take care of thee, my child,
Care of thee, care of thee;
I will take care of thee, my child,
Be not afraid.

2 Fear not when sorrows like sea-billows roll,
I will take care of thee;
Fear not when troubles dash over thy soul,
I will take care, take care of thee. [Refrain]

3 Fear not when tempted for I am near by,
I will take care of thee;
I will deliver when I hear thy cry,
I will take care, take care of thee. [Refrain]

4 Fear not when nearing eternity’s shore,
I will take care of thee;
Safe in my arms I will carry thee o’er,
I will take care, take care of thee. [Refrain]
