1 Just go on and do not worry,
Make the best of ev’ry day,
You will often meet with trouble,
Meet with trials on life’s way,
You can always count on Jesus,
He will keep you from all harm,
You may rest in glad assurance
On His everlasting arm.

Just go on and do not worry,
Trusting God, and you will find
That the “peace which passeth understanding,
Shall keep your heart and mind.”

2 Just go on and do not worry,
Never murmur or repine,
Tho’ all human help may fail you,
You may trust the pow’r divine,
Tho’ the clouds hang low around you,
Tho’ the storm may seem severe,
He who still’d the raging tempest,
You may always know is near. [Chorus]

3 Just go on and do not worry,
Let not sin reign in your soul,
Give the Christ, who is your Saviour,
Of your life the full control,
Only in such full surrender,
Can you have God’s very best,
Only as you cease to worry
Can your heart find joy and rest. [Chorus]
