If You Remain in Him (Don’t Worry)

Don’t worry about tomorrow
For it’s just another day
Don’t worry about your sorrow

For He will send it away
Don’t worry about loneliness
For the Lord will stay with you
Don’t worry about being best
If you just try, that will do
 
If you remain in Him
And His words remain in you
And you believe in what you ask
It will all be given to you
 
Don’t worry about the darkness
For He’ll turn your night to day
Don’t worry about happiness
For you’ll have it if you pray
Don’t worry about eating well
For the Lord will fill your need
Don’t worry about seeing hell
If you the Lord’s words do heed.
 
If you remain in Him
And His words remain in you
And you believe in what you ask
It will all be given to you

These lyrics were set to music by two different musicians I’ve known.  One was one of my music teachers in school, who played it on a piano. Another was a friend from high school who composed and sang it with a guitar.  I have no recordings of either version and only the hand-written sheet music of the version composed by my former music teacher.  See the image below.)  Bummer 😦
