How sweet, my Savior, to repose

Representative Text

1 How sweet, my Saviour, to repose
On Thine almighty pow’r!
To feel Thy strength upholding me,
Thro’ ev’ry trying hour!

Refrain:
“Casting all your care upon Him,
Casting all your care upon Him,
Casting all your care upon Him,
For He careth, He careth for you.”

2 It is Thy will that I should cast
My ev’ry care on Thee;
To Thee refer each rising grief,
Each new perplexity; [Refrain]

3 That I should trust Thy loving care,
And look to Thee alone,
To calm each troubled thought to rest,
In prayer before Thy throne. [Refrain]

4 Why should my heart then be distrest,
By dread of future ill?
Or why should unbelieving fear
My trembling spirit fill? [Refrain]
