Lyrics

How sweet, my Sav­ior, to re­pose
On Thine al­migh­ty pow­er!
To feel Thy strength up­hold­ing me,
Thro’ ev­ery try­ing hour!

Refrain

Casting all your care up­on Him,
Casting all your care up­on Him,
Casting all your care up­on Him,
For He car­eth, He car­eth for you.

It is Thy will that I should cast
My ev­ery care on Thee;
To Thee re­fer each ris­ing grief,
Each new per­plex­ity.

Refrain

That I should trust Thy lov­ing care,
And look to Thee alone,
To calm each trou­bled thought to rest,
In pray­er be­fore Thy throne.

Refrain

Why should my heart then be dis­tressed
By dread of fu­ture ill?
Or why should un­be­liev­ing fear
My trem­bling spi­rit fill?

Refrain
