1. Never be afraid to speak for Jesus,
Think how much a word can do;
Never be afraid to own your Savior,
He who loves and cares for you.

Never be afraid, never be afraid,
Never, never, never;
Jesus is your loving Savior,
Therefore never be afraid.

2. Never be afraid to work for Jesus
In His vineyard day by day;
Labor with a kind and willing spirit,
He will all your toil repay. [Refrain]

3. Never be afraid to bear for Jesus
Keen reproaches when they fall
Patiently endure your every trial,
Jesus meekly bore them all. [Refrain]

4. Never be afraid to die for Jesus,
He the Life, the Truth, the Way,
Gently in His arms of love will bear you
To the realms of endless day. [Refrain]
