48. Fear Not!

1 Fear not! God is thy shield,
And He thy great reward;
His might has won the field:
Thy strength is in the Lord!

Fear not! ‘tis God’s own voice
That speaks to thee this word;
Lift up your head: rejoice
In Jesus Christ thy Lord.

2 Fear not! for God has heard
The cry of thy distress;
The water of His word
Thy fainting soul shall bless. [Refrain]

3 Fear not! be not dismayed!
He evermore will be
With thee, to give His aid,
And He will strengthen thee. [Refrain]

4 Fear not! ye little flock;
Your Shepherd soon will come,
Give water from the rock,
And bring you to His home! [Refrain]
