God Will Take Care Of You

Civilla recounts how this hymn was written: “I was con­fined to a sick bed in a Bi­ble school in Les­ter­shire, New York. My hus­band was spend­ing sev­er­al weeks at the school, mak­ing a song­book for the pres­i­dent of the school. “God Will Take Care of You” was writ­ten one Sun­day af­ter­noon while my hus­band went to a preach­ing ap­point­ment. When he re­turned I gave the words to him. He im­me­di­ate­ly sat down to his lit­tle Bil­horn or­gan and wrote the music. That even­ing he and two of the teach­ers sang the com­plet­ed song. It was then print­ed in the song­book he was com­pil­ing for the school.”

This is a wonderful, lively hymn that assures us of God eternal care for us. Interestingly, it is side by side with God Leads Us Along in the Revival Hymns and Choruses book. (353 and 354). I hope you like this rendition.

Lyrics: Civilla D. Martin
Music: W. Stillman Martin

Be not dismayed whate’er betide, God will take care of you
Beneath His wings of love abide, God will take care of you

God will take care of you, Thru ev’ry day, O’er all the way
He will take care of you, God will take care of you

Thru days of toil when 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
