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]
