Lyrics

When I am far from friends and home,
Upon the land, or sea,
My Savior’s near, whate’er may come,
I know He cares for me.

Refrain

He watches o’er me day and night,
He makes my many burdens light,
I know my Savior cares for me.
Whene’er I call, He hears my cry,
And wholly on Him I rely—
I know my Savior cares for me!

Upon the cross, in wondrous love,
He died, from sin to free,
And now prepares my home above,
I know He cares for me.

Refrain

The darkest clouds may o’er me roll,
Undaunted I shall be;
My faithful friend will keep my soul,
I know He cares for me.

Refrain

I’ll sing His praise with heart and voice,
Now, and eternally;
And in His strength and love rejoice,
I know He cares for me.
