Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

He cares for me, he knows my heart's distress

Tune: [He cares for me, he knows my heart's distress]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 He cares for me, he knows my heart's distress,
Its weight of care, its pain and loneliness;
Sweet solace this--whate'er my lot my be,
The blessed Lord, he sees and cares for me, he cares for me.

Chorus:
He cares for me,
He cares for me,
He sees and cares for me, for me.

2 Within each breast are hidden griefs to bear,
No earthly friend with us these griefs can share;
In such dark hours my Comforter is he,
He understands--he loves and cares for me, he cares for me. [Chorus]

3 What tho' I am his smallest, weakest child,
When others frown'd I know that he has smiled;
The inner conflicts fierce they could not see,
He knows it all--and still he cares for me, he cares for me. [Chorus]

4 He cares for me, thro' life, thro' death, I know
Beyond his sheltering love I cannot go;
While him I trust, while unto him I flee,
He will protect because he cares for me, he cares for me. [Chorus]
