How strong and sweet my Father’s care,
That round about me, like the air,
Is with me always, everywhere!
He cares for me!

The thought great wonder with it brings,
My cares are all such little things,
But to the truth my glad heart clings,
He cares for me!

O keep me ever in Thy love,
Dear Father, watching from above,
And as through life my steps shall move,
O care for me.
