He Will Care for Me

Full Text

1 I walk today in the Christian way,
Though dangers I may see;
I will not fear for the Lord is near,
And He will care for me.

No matter what happens, He will care for me;
He will care for me, He will care for me.
And His mighty hand will enable me to stand,
No matter what happens to me.

2 No test I face but sufficient grace
Is ready for my need;
When sorrows rise to obscure my skies,
He proves a friend indeed. [Refrain]

3 He will not fail in the strongest gale
That stormy winds can blow;
And in His grace is a hiding place
Unknown to any foe. [Refrain]

4 I trust in Him though disasters grim
Before me seem to be;
He calms my fears, and He dries my tears,
And faithful is to me. [Refrain]
