God Will Take Care of You
Psalm 63:7
GOD CARES  |  Hymn History  |  Bible Passage
Author: Civilla D. Martin, 1869-1948
Musician: W. Stillman Martin, 1862-1935

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,
Thro' ev'ry day, O'er all the way;
He will take care of you,
God will take care of you.

Thro' 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;
Trust Him, and you will be satisfied,
God will take care of you.

Lonely or sad, from friends apart,
God will take care of you;
He will give peace to your aching heart,
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.



HYMN HISTORY:

In his book Hymns of Faith, Nathanael Olson wisely observes, 'Who can comprehend the faith and wisdom of a child?'

That's something I've often thought about myself. It seems that the faith of a child is unclouded by doubt or unbelief. Children believe implicitly in the power of God to answer prayer; and in His willingness to do so. They just can't entertain failure in the matter of their prayers.

I must add that I've often been impressed by this same simple faith in the hearts of my own children. So it was with the nine year old son of a baptist minister in 1904.

The Rev. W. Stillman Martin had an invitation to preach in New York City. However, his wife was ill; too ill to accompany him on the journey; perhaps too ill to be left behind while he went away. He thought of cancelling the engagement and staying by her side.

Sensing his father's concern the nine year old son enquired, 'Daddy, don't you think that if God wants you to preach today, He will take care of Mother while you're away?' The father thought about this for a moment and then replied, 'Yes son, I know He will.'

Thus, assured, he kissed his wife and son goodbye and hurried of to fulfil the preaching engagement as planned.

On his return, some time later, he was pleasantly surprised to find his wife greatly improved. As he came to her bed side she handed him a poem she had written in his absence- a poem of comfort inspired by their son's simple faith. "Be not dismayed what'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,
Through every day,
O're all the way;
He will take care of you

The Reverend Martin placed the words on the music stand of the organ and in a short time had composed a tune which suited his wife's words perfectly.

God will take care of you is a real hymn of encouragement. It assures us that 'through days of toil, 'in times of danger or need,' in fact, 'no matter what the test,' God will take care of His people. Of course, that's a premise which is Bible based.

Thank God for the little nine year old boy who saw it more clearly than his preacher Dad did at first!
