God Will Take Care of You
C. D. Martin W. S. Martin

1.Be not dismayed whate'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,
Thro'every day
o'er all the way;
He will take care of you,
God will take care of you.
2.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.
3.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.
4.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.

Unison Psalm or Memory Selection (Psalm 23)
The Lord is my shepherd ; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures ;
He leadeth me beside the still waters ; he restoreth my soul :
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for thou art with me ;
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies :
Thou anointest my head with oil ; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life ;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.(Seated)

Prayer and Hymn Response (First stanza only of following hymn)

How Strong and Sweet My Father's Care
(EUDORA. 8,8,8,4)
Anonymous J. R. Murray

1.How strong and sweet my Father's care,
That round about me, like the air,
Is with me always, everywhere
He cares for me.
O keep me ever in thy love,
Dear Father, watching from above;
And let me still thy mercy prove,
And care for me.

Unison psalm (Psalm 121)
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills:
From whence cometh my help ?
My help cometh from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel
Will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper:
The Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep thee from all evil;
He will keep thy soul.
The Lord will keep thy going out and thy coming in
From this time forth and for evermore.

Hymn Response How Strong and Sweet (Second stanza)
O keep me ever in thy love,
Dear Father, watching from above;
And let me still thy mercy prove,
And care for me. Amen.

Responsive Reading (Psalm 46)
God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore will we not fear, though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.
There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her ; she shall not be moved ;
God will help her, and that right early.
The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved:
He uttered his voice, the earth melted.
The Lord of hosts is with us ;
The God of Jacob is our refuge.

Thou Art My Shepherd
(LYNDE. 6,6,6,4,6,6,6,4 )
Elsie Thalheimer, 1800 Thuringian Folk Song

1.Thou art my Shepherd,
Caring in every need ,
thy loving lamb to feed,
Trusting thee still.
In the Green Pastures low,
where living.waters flow,
Safe by thy side I go,
Fearing no ill.
2.Or if my way lie
Where storms are raging nigh,
Nothing can terrify,
I trust thee still.
How can I be afraid,
While softly On my head
Thy tender hand is laid;
I fear no ill.
