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.

Representative Text

1 I know, when the storms are sweeping,
I’m safe in my Master’s keeping;
He watches with love, unsleeping,
My Saviour takes care of me.

My Saviour takes care of me,
And safe I shall always be;
When troubles assail, my hope does not fail,
For my Saviour takes care of me.

2 No care for the coming morrow,
No fear of an undimm’d sorrow,
For just what I need I borrow,
My Saviour takes care of me. [Refrain]

3 Until I have crossed the river,
My soul shall be troubled never,
For this is my comfort ever,
My Saviour takes care of me. [Refrain]
