1 My Father knows just what I need,
He watches o’er my way;
How sweet to lean upon His love
Each moment of the day.

He knows, He cares, He loves me so,
He watches o’er the way I go;
And by His hand will lead me on
To that fair land of endless song.

2 His eye will guide me in the path
That leads to light and home;
His grace will hold me, so that I
From Him will never roam. [Refrain]

3 His grace is mine in weakest hour,
When enemies appall;
My hand in His, His hand in mine,
I know I cannot fall. [Refrain]
