146. God who made the earth

1 God, who made the earth,
the air, the sky, the sea,
who gave the light its birth,
God cares for me.

2 God, who made the grass,
the flower, the fruit, the tree,
the day and night to pass,
will care for me.

3 God who made the sun,
the moon, the stars, is he
who, when life's clouds come on,
still cares for me.

4 God, who sent his Son
to die on Calvary,
has shown how lovingly
he cares for me.
