Cast Your Cares on Him

(I Peter 5:7)

I wallowed in the valley of despair.
Thinking there was no one who ever cared,
And I didn’t know what to do.
And then I heard the voice of the Lord
Speaking softly to my heart of hearts,
He said, “Cast your cares on Me, I care for you.”

Are you heavy laden down with care?
Do your burdens seem too much to bear?
And you don’t know what to do?
Bring your every burden to the Lord.
Raise your hands in praise for in His Word,
He said, “Cast your cares on Me. I care for you.”

I know there is One Who cares for me.
And now I know exactly what to do.
I call upon my Savior, Jesus.
I praise Him as He blesses me anew.
He meets my every need. I praise His holy name.
My hungry soul does feed. I praise His holy name.
Cast your cares on Him. He cares for you.
