Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

177. I'll Not Be Afraid

1 I’ll not be afraid for the terror by night,
Nor the arrow that flieth by day;
For the Lord whom I serve is my shield and my light,
He will guide and protect all the way.

Refrain:
I’ll not be afraid, I’ll not be afraid,
Where He leadeth I safely can go;
I will trust Him alway, both by night and by day,
He’ll be with me forever, I know.

2 I’ll not be afraid, though the stormy winds blow,
And the billows sweep over my soul;
He who calmeth the sea will protect me, I know,
And will lead me to heaven’s bright goal. [Refrain]

3 I’ll not be afraid of the scorns of the world,
Nor to tell of God’s wonderful love;
When from Satan’s vile host fiery darts shall be hurled,
I’ll be strengthened with grace from above. [Refrain]

4 I’ll not be afraid when the grave I shall see—
Just beyond its dark shadow is rest;
And the welcome of angels is waiting for me,
When I enter those realms of the blest. [Refrain]
