Lyrics

I have a precious, faithful guide,
A firm, abiding friend,
Who in His word the promise gives
To help me to the end.
I cast on Him my every care,
Whose eye my heart can see,
Though oft I wander from His love,
I know He cares for me.

Refrain

He cares for even me,
And this my joy shall be,
That if He marks the sparrow’s fall,
I know He cares for me.

The fragrant lilies of the field,
He clothes in beauty rare,
And though they neither toil nor spin,
He makes them still His care.
No king on earth, however great,
Like them arrayed can be,
And so I learn to trust my Lord,
And know He cares for me.

Refrain

The birds that neither sow nor reap,
By Him are daily fed,
Who numbers with unerring glance,
The hairs upon my head.
Within His everlasting arms
My soul at peace shall be;
I cannot doubt, because I know
My Savior cares for me.
