“He careth for you.”  1 Pet. 5. 7;  Ps. 55. 22

1
Now I see, whate’er betide,
All is well if Christ be mine;
He has promised to provide;
May he teach me to resign.

2
When a sense of sin and thrall
Forced me to the sinner’s Friend,
He engaged to manage all,
By the way and to the end.

3
“Cast,” he said, “on me thy care;
’Tis enough that I am nigh;
I will all thy burdens bear;
I will all thy needs supply.”

4
Lord, I would indeed submit;
Gladly yield my all to thee;
What thy wisdom sees most fit,
Must be surely best for me.

5
Only when the way is rough,
And the coward flesh would start,
Let thy promise and thy love
Cheer and animate my heart.
