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?

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

Refrain:
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]
