I care not what tomorrow brings

Content I am today

I know the blessed Lord above

Will hear the word I pray


I ask Him not for wealth or fame

My needs He will provide

Just give me strength to meet each day

Be ever at my side


He hears my every cry of pain

He knows my joys and sorrow

And He who sees each sparrow fall

Will not fail me tomorrow
