Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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]
