Here is a comforting old hymn that I thought might bless you.  I’m thinking of all of you who have been displaced by Hurricaine Ike, and all the weather related problems that occured all through out the midwest and east.  Some  of you have lost everything.  You need words of comfort.  God is still there even though it doesn’t seem so at times.  He is still watching out for you and He is the God of all comfort.  My prayer is that He will take good care of you now. 

 Rest in his arms when difficulties come your way.  He is your Heavenly Father!

I Peter 5:7  (NIV)  “Cast all you anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”


Civilla D. Martin (1866-1948)

Words: Ci­vil­la D. Mar­tin, 1904; first appeared in Songs of Redemption and Praise, by John A. Davis, 1905.

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.

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

Refrain

God will take care of you,
Through every day, over all the way;
He will take care of you,
God will take care of you.

Through 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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain
