Lyrics (via hymnary.org)
YE SERVANTS OF GOD, YOUR MASTER PROCLAIM, by Charles Wesley
1 You servants of God, your Master proclaim,
and publish abroad his wonderful name;
the name all-victorious of Jesus extol;
his kingdom is glorious and rules over all.
2 God rules in the height, almighty to save;
though hid from our sight, his presence we have;
the great congregation his triumph shall sing,
ascribing salvation to Jesus our King.
3 “Salvation to God, who sits on the throne!”
let all cry aloud, and honor the Son;
the praises of Jesus the angels proclaim,
fall down on their faces and worship the Lamb.
4 Then let us adore and give him his right:
all glory and power, all wisdom and might,
all honor and blessing with angels above
and thanks never ceasing for infinite love.
CHILDREN OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER, by Ernst W. Olson
1 Children of the heav’nly Father
safely in his bosom gather.
Nestling bird nor star in heaven
such a refuge e’er was given.
2 God his own doth tend and nourish,
in his holy courts they flourish.
From all evil things he spares them,
in his mighty arms he bears them.
3 Neither life nor death shall ever
from the Lord his children sever.
Unto them his grace he showeth,
and their sorrows all he knoweth.
4 Though he giveth or he taketh,
God his children ne’er forsaketh.
His the loving purpose solely
to preserve them safe and holy.
GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU, by Fanny J. Crosby
1 God will take care of you, be not afraid;
He is your safeguard thro’ sunshine and shade;
Tenderly watching and keeping His own,
He will not leave you to wander alone.
God will take care of you still to the end;
Oh, what a Father, Redeemer and Friend!
Jesus will answer whenever you call,
He will take care of you, trust Him for all.
2 God will take care of you, thro’ all the day,
Shielding your footsteps, directing your way;
He is your Shepherd, Protector and Guide,
Leading His children where still waters glide. [Chorus]
3 God will take care of you, long as you live,
Granting you blessings no other can give;
He will take care of you when time is past,
Safe to His kingdom will bring you at last. [Chorus]
