As I travel on thru life
O’er the mountain tops of strife
Often the pathway I cannot see;
But I’ve nothing now to fear
Help divine is always near
I have a friend to take care of me.
Oft so lonely here I cry
Sorrows dark keep passing by
Comfort and strength from me often flee
Many loved ones now are gone
But another leads me on
I have my Lord to take care of me.
If alone I’d go astray
But my Savior knows the way
Over the road to eternity
If I do His blest command
In the hollow of His hand
Jesus my Lord will take care of me.
There will come for me a day
When from life I sail away
Into the dark on an unknown sea
But His love is with me still
If I do His blessed will
I know the Lord will take care of me.
