Representative Text

1. Poor and needy though I be,
Christ my Saviour cares for me;
Gives me clothing, shelter, food;
Gives me all I have of good.

Chorus:
Poor and needy though I be,
Christ my Saviour cares for me;
Poor and needy though I be,
Jesus cares for me.

2. He who hear me when I pray,
And will keep me night and day;
When I sleep, and when I wake,
For the Lord my Saviour's sake. [Chorus]

3. He who reigns above the sky
Once became as poor as I;
He whose blood for me was shed
Had not where to lay his head. [Chorus]

4. Then to him I'll tune my song,
Happy as the day is long;
This my joy forever be
Christ my Saviour cares for me. [Chorus]
