1 There may come doubts, there may come fears,
Perhaps dark days, and gloomy years,
But joy will fill the heart which hears:
“Fear not, I’ll go with thee.”

Refrain:
Oh, may this promise be thine own,
When loved forsake, when friends disown:
“The faithful I’ll not leave alone,
Fear not, I’ll go with thee.”

2 There may be times of gloom and dread
When thorns bestrew the paths we tread,
May to each heart these words be said:
“Fear not, I’ll go with thee.” [Refrain]

3 There may come storms across the breast,
And treach’rous shoals the way infest,
May these words cheer each heart oppressed:
“Fear not, I’ll go with thee.” [Refrain]
