He’ll Take Care of the Rest

I love it when good songs get stuck in my head. I love it even more when I wake up and the song is already there. I didn’t wake up singing this one but it has been in my head all day. A good reminder from the Lord really. Thanks God!

He’ll Take Care of the Rest by Keith Green
You know it ain’t no use, banging your head, up against that cold stone wall,
Cause nobody’s perfect, except for the Lord, and even the best bound to fall,
Remember He is de vine, and you are de branch,
He’d love to get you through it if you’d give Him a chance,
Just keep doing your best,
And pray that it’s blessed,
And Jesus takes care of the rest.
Yes the Lord said that He’d take care of the rest, He’s gonna do it,
He’ll take care of the rest, He’ll see you through it,
He’ll take care of the rest, the devil blew it,
He’ll take care of the, He’ll take care of the rest.
Just think about Moses, in front of the burning bush, barefoot on the Holy
ground,
You know, he must have been thinking, what’s an old dude like me,
Gonna tell em all when I go down, go down Moses,
The Lord said, hey Moe, don’t you worry about going down south,
I’ll be saying every word that comes out of your mouth,
Just keep doing your best, and pray that it’s blessed,
Hey Moe, I’ll take care of the rest.
Yes the Lord said that He’d take care of the rest, he’s gonna do it,
He’ll take care of the rest, He’ll see you through it,
He’ll take care of the rest, oh, Pharaoh blew it,
He’ll take care of the, He’ll take care of the rest.
Just believe, and you’ll receive, that comfort you need,
You just think about all those lonely people you know,
They’ve got everything they want, but they have empty souls,
Well, He’ll take care of the, He’ll take care of the, He’ll take care of the,
care of the rest.
You just think about Noah, toting his umbrella, when there wasn’t a cloud in
the sky,
All his neighbors would laugh at his pet giraffe, and would snicker as he
walked by,
But the Lord said, hey Noah, keep cool, just keep building that boat,
It’s just a matter of time till they see who’s gonna float,
You just keep doing your best, and pray that it’s blessed,
Hey Noah, I’ll take care of the rest, I’m the weatherman.
The Lord said that he’ll take care of the rest, He’s gonna do it,
He’ll take care of the rest, He’ll see you through it,
He’ll take care of the rest, his neighbors blew it,
He’ll take care of the rest, He’s gonna do it, He’s gonna do it,
He’ll take care of the rest, only Jesus can see you through it,
He’ll take care of the rest, yes, yes, yes,
He’ll take care of the, He’ll take care of the rest….

    I like the words of this song, even though I don’t think I’ve heard. I confess that I’m not “into” Keith Green. On another topic, I see you read “The Time Traveller’s Wife”. What did you think? I was looking at it for a nice brain-candy read. Jen

    To be honest Jen, I really don’t know too many of Keith Green’s songs. So I was kind of surprised that this one got stuck in my head. 🙂“The Time Traveller’s Wife” is definitely brain candy. You won’t get much out of it, but it’s a fast read. Maybe borrow it or get it second hand instead of buying a new copy. Have you read “Memoirs of a Geisha?” I just started it and it’s good. A little different from the movie but good.

    Thanks for the tip, I’ll see if anyone here has a copy. I saw the movie “Memoirs of a Geisha” but havne’t read the book. Yet! : ) Last month I read “The Kite Runner” about a boy’s childhood in pre-war Afghanistan and his journey back during the Taliban reign. Well written but a pretty dark subject. Now I’m looking for a novel that’s a bit more cheery!
