Civilla Durfee Martin died 3/9/1948 at Atlanta, GA.  She was born 8/21/1869 at Jordan, Nova Scotia, Canada.  She was the daughter of James & Irene (Harding) Holden & became a school teacher.  Later she married Walter Stillman Martin, a Harvard graduate, who was a preacher & a musician.

 She left a history of one of her song favorites:

“I was confined to a sick bed in a Bible school in Lestershire [now Johnson City], NY husband was spending several weeks at the school, making a songbook for the president of the school. God Will Take Care of You was written one Sunday afternoon while my husband went to a preaching appointment. When he returned I gave the words to him. He immediately sat down to his little Bilhorn organ and wrote the music. That evening he and two of the teachers sang the completed song. It was then printed in the songbook he was compiling for the school.


Be not dismayed whate’er betide, God will take care of you;

Beneath His wings of love abide, God will take care of you.


God will take care of you, Through every day, over all the way;

He will take care of you, God will take care of you.
