1. Be of good cheer, saith the Savior,
Tho’ all thy brightest hopes fade;
I will be near to sustain thee;
It is I, O be not afraid.

It is I, it is I,
It is I, O be not afraid!
Be of good cheer, saith the Savior;
It is I, O be not afraid!

2. Be of good cheer, tho’ the tempter
And world are ’gainst thee arrayed;
I will give grace that will conquer;
It is I, O be not afraid. [Refrain]

3. Be of good cheer thro’ thy trials;
On Me let burdens be laid;
Tho’ they be heavy, I’ll bear them;
It is I, O be not afraid. [Refrain]
