I know that my Father is caring
For all of His children below;
I know that through sunshine and shadow,
He guides me wherever I go.
I trust Him thro’ all of life’s journey,
For clearly the way He can see;
He holdeth my hand in the darkness;
I know He is caring for me.
I fear not though peril surround me,
He promised to shield me from harm;
Though doubt and temptation assail me,
I’m safe in His sheltering arm.
One world is but dust in His balance,
One sea but a drop in His hand;
One soul in His sight is more precious
Than treasures of ocean and land.
