Fear not, to tread life's road

Representative Text

1 Fear not to treat life's road, dear friend,
Tho' dark it sometimes be;
God's presence shall thy way attend,
His love thy light shall be.

Fear not to tread life's changeful way,
Where'er the path may trend.
God will be with thee day by day,
A never failing Friend.

2 Fear not, tho' cares may oft distress,
Still hand in hand with thee
Thy Father walks, to cheer and bless
Thy soul in mercy free. [Chorus]

3 Fear not, O friend, whate'er may come,
Thou canst not be forgot;
With tender hand he'll lead thee home,
His love will fail thee not. [Chorus]
