Lord How I Need Thy Care


Lord, how I need Thy care,
And Thy most watchful eye,
To feel that in my pray’r,
Dear Father, Thou art nigh,
To feel that in my pray’r,
Dear Father, thou art nigh.

Refrain:
Thou never wilt forsake me,
On Thee I can rely;
My refuge Thou wilt ever be,
For Thou art ever by.

Though trials may annoy,
Thou wilt bring blissful peace;
Sweet happiness and joy,
Thou ever wilt increase,
Sweet happiness and joy,
Thou ever wilt increase. [Refrain]

No love can be like Thine,
So merciful and kind;
And where Thy light doth shine,
Contentment we shall find,
And where Thy light doth shine,
Contentment we shall find. [Refrain]

Oh! how Thy blessed love
Will make the world seem bright,
And lead the soul above,
To find eternal light,
And lead the soul above,
To find eternal light. [Refrain]
