1 He careth for me, my Father cares!
Oh, sweetest tho’t to my spirit known;
I have no fears for the coming years,
He ne’er forsakes me nor leaves His own.

“He careth for me,”—my morning hymn,
“He careth for me,”—my evening psalm;
By day, by night, in glom, in light,
Beneath is the everlasting arm.

2 He careth for me,—I take no care;
I trust in Him who will guard and guide,—
It is enough when the road is rough,
To know my Savior is by my side. [Refrain]

3 He careth for me, my Father cares!
My heart is singing a grateful song;
I look above as I sing His love,
To cheer the journey that seems so long. [Refrain]

4 He careth for me; this weary road
The safest is for my feet to tread;
In paths of bliss I might sometimes miss
The beacon light from the gates ahead. [Refrain]
