1 God who made the earth,
the air, the sky, the sea,
who gave the light its birth,
careth for me.

2 God who made the grass,
the flow'r, the fruit, the tree,
the day and night to pass,
careth for me.

3 God who made the sun,
The moon, the stars, is he
who, when life's clouds come on,
careth for me.

4 God who sent his Son
to die on Calvary,
he if I lean on him,
will care for me.
