He Cares

Top o’ the morning to you

First thing in the morning, people don’t like a loud voice waking them up. Proverbs 27 wisely teaches: “Don’t wake up your neighbors early in the morning with a shout of β€œGood morning!” They will treat it like a curse, not a blessing.”

But the verse doesn’t say you can’t get YOURSELF up with some cheerful energy. Give our song “He Cares” a listen, then come back and we’ll look at lyrics from Blues songs you might want to consider — and, I hope, reject as songs YOU choose to wake up to. πŸ˜€

From “ONO!!” to “AOKAY

I woke — I wake
Change “o” to “a”
A simple change,
A happier day.

WOKE
β™«β™ͺ I woke up this morning…β™«β™ͺ are the opening words for a surprising number of songs — Blues and some C&W and R&R. Usually the singer woke up knowing trouble was already there — or trouble was coming.

Classic lyric examples:
“I woke up this morning, I had them Statesboro Blues”
“I woke up this morning, … hello trouble”
“I woke up this morning, …I got trouble”
“Woke up this morning, my baby was gone… I felt so bad”

I even saw THIS one – I guess just so we don’t take things TOO seriously:
What is written on the tombstone of a bluesman? “Didn’t wake up this morning…”

WAKE
Change the past tense “woke” to present “wake” and we declare war on OUR blues and stake out our turf for a GREAT day. Instead of looking backward or downward, we can look forward and upward. We might not win every battle in the fight to wake up happy but it sure helps if we set up the expectation that the day we are entering will be filled with blessings.

Our song offers these keys to success:

1. “Know my Father’s word”
2. “Know He cares for me”

He cares for you

We begin to learn #2 (He cares for me) through #1 (know His word).

Read I Peter 5 and find:
“He cares for you”.
The whole verse is even better:
“Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”

When we learn to cast our cares upon Him, we get to see for ourselves how VERY WELL HE CARES for us.

Go ahead — cast your cares upon Him, and let Him prove His word works. It does not take very many times before you, too, will wake up in the morning as happy as can be.

God bless you lots!

LYRICS: He Cares

I wake up in the morning and I’m happy as can be,
Because I know my Father’s Word and I know He cares for me.
I know He cares, I know He cares, I know He cares for me,
I know He cares, I know He cares, I know He cares for me.

I wake up in the morning and I’m peaceful as can be,
Because I know my Father’s Word and I know He cares for me.
I know He cares, I know He cares, I know He cares for me,
I know He cares, I know He cares, I know He cares for me.
