He careth for me, my Father cares!
Oh, sweetest thought to my spirit known;
I have no fears for the coming years,
He never forsakes me nor leaves His own.


He careth for me—my morning hymn;
He careth for me—my evening psalm;
By day and by night, in gloom, in light,
Beneath is the everlasting arm.

He careth for me—I take no care;
I trust in Him who will guard and guide—
It is enough when the road is rough,
To know my Savior is by my side.


He careth for me, my Father cares!
My heart is singing a grateful song;
I look above as I sing His love,
To cheer the journey that seems so long.


He careth for me; this weary road
The safest is for my feet to tread;
In paths of bliss I might sometimes miss
The beacon light from the gates ahead.
