    PROGRAM NOTE
    The song (S.A.S.B. 5) featured in this arrangement was specifically chosen to bring comfort and assurance to those impacted by the COVID-19 virus in 2020. In a time where many have missed coming together for corporate worship, or gathering in other ways, one verse speaks of being “lonely and sad, from friends apart,” an experience shared by so many during this difficult time. No matter the circumstances of life we must face, the songwriter assures us that God will be there to meet our every need. May this song remind listeners of that reality.
    1. Be not dismayed whate’er betide, 2. Lonely and sad, from friends apart,
    God will take care of you! God will take care of you!
    Beneath his wings of love abide, He will give peace to your aching heart,
    God will take care of you! God will take care of you!
    God will take care of you, 3. No matter what may be the test,
    Through every day o’er the way! God will take care of you!
    He will take care of you; Lean, weary one, upon his breast,
    God will take care of you! God will take care of you!
