I'll Take Care of You
A Song by Edward Waters
(Copyright © September 1976)


With My hands you were created,
With My breath you were animated,
And throughout Heaven you were celebrated!
Why wonder then what I'll do?
Know that I'll take care of you.

I died to wash away your past,
I rose to give you new life that would last,
And now I want your faith to stand steadfast.
So be at peace: My word is true.
Yes, I'll take care of you.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and brave!
Do not tremble, neither be dismayed;
For the Lord your God is with you everywhere you go.*

My love is never-ending;
My heart is understanding;
And so, whatever there may be impending,
Rest assured that I'll see you through.
Yes, I'll take care of you.

Trust I will
take care of you.
My child, I will
take care of you.
Peace. Be still.


* Joshua 1.9
