Be not dismayed whate’er betide

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,
Through every day o’er all the way;
He will take care of you;
  God will take care of you!
Through 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 and 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!

My darling Mother died five days ago and I have been trying to find this song for her memorial service.She had a long rich life of 94 years but like all lives she had her sorrows. This favorite song of hers comforts me in my deep sadness. I am so thankful for the unfailing truth that our dear Lord is real and does take care of all of those who seek Him.


Oh Lord Jesus what a precious hymn to enjoy while I am dismayed. My dear brother is divorcing me after 30 yrs. How to go on, how to shepherd the children, how to see him in the meetings, I know not. My spirit grieves and I do not understand. But I praise God that He will take care of me even when assailed with these dangers fierce in my path, no matter what the test, no matter my failing heart. He gives peace. Lord Jesus I lean on Your breast and abide beneath the wings of Your love tonight. God will take care of me. God will take care of me. Lord Jesus, I trust in our Father to take care of me and my children. Lord Jesus I love You even now. Lord make me an overcomer thru letting the Triune God take care of my body, soul and spirit. I surrender to Your care, I trust in Your care. I hold on to nothing on this earth. Gain the increase of Yourself in me for the Body. What a waste if I don't gain You in this unbearable suffering.


This song has helped me through so much. Even as I go through severe anxiety now, listening to this makes it so much easier to cope with.

Just wanted to retire to bed at 12:00 am then song rang in my heart, then I quickly got hold of my android phone browsed the lyrics and then sang till my heart was refreshed, refilled, refired and reassured. May God bless you.
