Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 I’m not afraid to trust in Jesus,
For His blood was shed for me;
I cannot doubt His love and mercy
When His wounded hands I see.

I’m not afraid, I’m not afraid,
I’m not afraid to trust in Him;
I’m not afraid, for He’s my friend,
And He’ll keep me to the end.

2 I’m not afraid to trust in Jesus,
Tho’ my sight is growing dim;
For He has made a full atonement,
And I’ll venture all on Him. [Chorus]

3 I’m not afraid to trust in Jesus,
On His word I can rely;
He can save my feet from falling,
He can keep me till I die. [Chorus]

4 I’m not afraid to trust in Jesus,
Though the world should pass away;
For He is faithful who hath promised,
He will keep me in that day. [Chorus]

Owens, Priscilla Jane, was born July 21, 1829, of Scotch and Welsh descent, and is now (1906) resident at Baltimore, where she is engaged in public-school work. For 50 years Miss Owen has interested herself in Sunday-school work, and most of her hymns were written for children's services. Her hymn in the Scotch Church Hymnary, 1898, "We have heard a joyful sound" (Missions), was written for a Sunday-school Mission Anniversary, and the words were adapted to the chorus "Vive le Roi" in the opera The Huguenots.
