Psalm 3

1 Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.

2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
3 But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

4 I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me.

6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
7 Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone;

thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8 Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

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, 
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. 
(Refrain)

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. 
(Refrain)
