Representative Text

1 Just a little message from the Word Divine;
Just a golden sunbeam in your heart to shine;
Just a precious promise, breathed upon the air,
Jesus careth for your care.

“Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you,”
Word that parts the clouds of trouble, letting a glory thro’;
“Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you;”
Precious promise, come and find it true.

2 If sins unforgiven weigh upon your soul,
On your mighty Saviour all the burden roll;
Seeking peace and pardon, come to Him in prayer,
Jesus careth for your care. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ life’s many trials fill your heart with dread,
If no brighter pathway can be seen ahead,
God will feed the raven, clothe the lily fair;
Jesus careth for your care. [Refrain]
