290. Be Not Afraid

1 “Be not afraid, ’tis I, ’tis I,
Though the storm rages wild;
In thy sore need I’m passing by,
Off’ring to help thee, hear thy cry—
Be of good cheer, My child.”

Refrain:
“Be not afraid, ’tis I,
Be not afraid, ’tis I”;
Though wild winds blowing,
My bark o’erflowing,
God rules in earth and sky:
“Be not afraid, ’tis I,
Be not afraid, ’tis I”;
The storm can’t harm my trusting soul,
For Jesus walks the waves that roll;
His voice I hear, which calms my fear,
“ ’Tis I, be not afraid.”

2 Be not afraid, ’mid pressing foes,
Jesus is watching near;
He all thy deepest sorrow knows,
Walked every step thy pathway goes;
Trust Him, then; do not fear. [Refrain]

3 Be not afraid, He knows thy heart,
And He doth care for thee;
Of all thy grief He shares a part,
Stands by thy side, He’ll not depart,
If thou wilt faithful be. [Refrain]

4 Be not afraid, O helpless one,
Trust in His boundless grace;
Say from the heart, “Thy will be done,
Finish the work Thou hast begun,
Bring me to see Thy face.” [Refrain]
