I trust in God wherever I may be,
Upon the land or on the rolling sea,
For, come what may, from day to day,
My heav'nly Father watches over me.

I trust in God, I know He cares for me,
On mountain bleak or on the stormy sea;
Tho' billows roll, He keeps my soul,
My heavn'ly Father watches over me.

He makes the rose an object of His care,
He guides the eagle thru the pathless air,
And surely He remembers me,
My heav'nly Father watches over me.


I trust in God, for in the the lion's den,
On battlefield, or in the prison pen,
Thru praise or blame, thru flood or flame,
My heav'nly Father watches over me.


The valley may be dark, the shadows deep
But O, The Shepherd guards His lonely sheep;
And thru the gloom, He'll lead me home
My heav'nly Father watches over me.


Words by W.C. Martin, Lyrics by Charles Gabriel.

Hope it helps,

The lyrics have been very useful to me. I live in Argentina and I´m a big Elvis fan. Right now I am teaching a course titled THE MUSIC OF ELVIS PRESLEY and I know that Kathy Westmoreland sang this hymn at Elvis´ funeral. So now that I have the lyrics I´ll be able to translate it into Spanish and read it to my students. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

Recently, my right arm was swollen, reason unknown.
I saw a private doctor who instilled much fear in me. Fear is then replaced by faith. Then I recalled this song "My Heavenly Father Watches Over Me", and was trying to find the lyrics,  and I found it here.
It is so comforting to know that God cares for me come what may. Another doctor, my friend at church, prescibed some antibiotics for my arm. Please pray that God will heal me speedily.
In His Care,

Is this the song you're looking for?

High up on a mountain
Called transfiguration, an angel of the Lord
declared that it would be
He said "don't stand there grieving,
for the one that you see leaving
in like manner's coming back for you and me

I believe he's coming back, like He said.
I believe that a trumpet's gonna sound so loud,
one day it'll wake the     .
in the twinkling of an eye,
He'll split the eastern sky,
and I believe He's coming back like He said.

I believe the time is nearing,
that we'll soon see His appearing.
this could be the hour
oh, this could be the day
when the saints from every nation
will lose their gravitation
in the middle of the air
be called away.

I awakened this morning with this old hymn on my mind.  When I was in Central High School in Oklahoma City more than 60 years ago, I was in the chorus.  Mrs,  Lee was the teacher.  We sang "My Heav'nly Father Watches Over Me" in the days before God was removed from our public schools.  Our soloist was Jacqueline Knight.  She sat in the soprano section near the door.  I was a 14 year old  freshman, and I thought I had never heard such a beautiful voice in person.  She was a beautiful young woman, all of 17 years old.  The last I heard, decades ago, Jackie lived in California. I was told she had gone to study with the San Francisco Opera Company.   If you know her, if she still lives, please tell her I have never forgotten her and her lovely voice.  James E.

I sang this hymn at my grandmothers funeral 22 years ago to the day! You would never believe that I never know more than the first verse and I have been looking for the lyrics for years!!  I am a soloist in my church choir in Baltimore, Md, and everytime I sing this song (Verse 1 and the Chorus) someone is moved to tears or cimes up and tells me how they remember the song from their grandmother or mother.  It has a very deep-rooted spiritual significance and serves as inspiration for everyone regardless of age, or personal circumstances.  I have had many tragic, traumatic experiences in my lifetime, but the Good Lord has ALWAYS seen me through those troubled times. I can attest to the fact that my Heavenly Father definitely, without a doubt, watches over me. I am so thankful for His Grace, Mercy and unconditional Love and I will praise His Wonderful Name for the rest of my days.

Hello,  blessings and honor all go My Precious Heavenly Father and bless you all Heavenly bound saints.  You have all renewed my spirit.  I am blessed with great health, not fearing the ganglion on my right hand wrist, will trust in Him in all my earthly battles.  Mom is having financial troubles and might loose her home, siblings are not saved, and I am the one who will continue trusting and waiting to see His hand move hearts and touch minds all to His honor and glory.  Brother who is a realtor might go to jail and is the one who got mom's home in financial issues.  Psalm 23 is my most favorite bible verse.  Woke up to this hymn and reading all of your messages truly lifted Spirit, I am only 42 and gave my heart to the Lord in 2007.  Life has been tough but His anointed keeps me in the path of righteousness.  I am so looking forward to meeting all of you as we get to meet Our Heavenly Father.  May Our Lord Jesus Christ reside in your hearts today and always let His sweet presence be the reason you smile and share His love with others.

I Trust In God    I was reading a sermonette a few minutes ago when I remembered a girl in my High School chorus class who sang this solo.  She had one of those unusual, utterly clear, high soprano voices that was unforgettable.  The date was 1948 and, in my heart, I can still hear her sing.  Praise God for still being worthy of my trust 60 years later.  "Behold, [He] changeth not."
