When trouble is in my way
I can't tell the night from day
I toss from side to side
Like a ship on a raging tide
I don't worry and I don't fret
God has never failed me yet
Troubles comin' from time to time
But that's all right, 'cause I'm not the worrying kind

Because I, I've got confidence,
God is gonna see me through
No matter what the case may be
I know He's gonna fix it for me

Job was so sick so long
Till the flesh fell from his bones
His wife, cattle and children,
Everything that he had was gone
But Job he never dispaired
He knew that God still cared
Sleepless days and sleepless nights
Job said honey that's all right

'Cause I've got confidence
God is gonna see me through
No matter what the case may be
I know He's gonna fix it for me

Some folks wonder how I smile
Even though I'm going to trial
How can I have song
Everything is going wrong
I don't worry and I don't fret
God has never failed me yet

Trouble's coming from time to time
That's all right, I'm not the worrying kind
'Cause I've got confidence.....
Recorded: 1971/05/18, first released on He Touched Me

Elvis sings his heart out. When he sings about Job, that's fantastic.

It's funny, given that I tend to like the chorus most of all in a song, that I think it's the weakest thing here. It's a little bland until the end when Elvis infuses it with personality. The rest of the song is just so strong. My favorite line is, "I don't worry and I don't fret -God has never failed me yet," Elvis knows exactly how to add texture and nuance to it with his voice. You don't find an uptempo gospel number this pleasant to listen to very often.

Loved this song, the first time I heard it, and I still Love it. Definately a "Feel good Inspirational" song

A very nice uptempo gospel number that follows the title song on the LP "He Touched Me". After these two songs, the LP is a little hit and miss, but overall it is an above average LP. I give this one 4 1/2 stars.

Good uptempo gospel with good lyrics. This one moves like a freight train!
