Be not dismayed whate’er betide, God will take care of you; Beneath His wings of love abide, God will take care of you. Through days of toil when your heart doth fail. God will take care of you; When dangers fierce your path assail, God will take care of you. All you may need he will provide, God will take care of you; Nothing you ask will be denied, God will take care of you. No matter what may be the test, God will take care of you; Lean, weary one, upon His breast, God will take care of you.
