Representative Text

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

2 God, who made the grass,
the flower, the fruit, the tree,
the day and night to pass:
He cares for me.

3 God, who made the sun,
the moon, the stars, is He
who, when life's clouds come on,
will care for me.

4 God, who made all things,
on earth, in air, in sea,
who changing seasons brings:
He cares for me.

5 God, who sent His Son
to die on Calvary,
He, if I lean on Him,
will care for me.
