1 God will take care of me;
Here I will rest,
Trusting His promise true,
Safe on His breast.
Changeful may be my lot,
His mercy changeth not;
No child of His forgot,
In Jesus, blest.

2 God will take care of me,
Hushing my fear;
When dangers ’round I see,
His voice I hear;
Then let my soul be brave,
High tho’ the wind and wave,
Greater His pow’r to save,
Tenderly near.

3 God will take care of me,
Holding the helm;
Storms that may sweep the sea
Will not o’erwhelm.
Soon, ev’ry billow pass’d,
I shall my anchor cast,
Safe, safe at home at last,
In joy’s bright realm.
