1 Tho’ the tempest rages,
And the day is past;
Tho’ the darkness deepens,
And the night falls fast;
There is heard a whisper,
In the thick’ning shade,
“It is I, the Master;
Do not be afraid!”

2 Nothing can be harmful,
Which the Father sends;
Even loss and sorrow,
And the lack of friends
Need not make us fearful,
Troubled or dismayed,
Since the Lord is saying,
“Do not be afraid!”

3 Soon the flowing river,
Will be near our feet;
We must cross the waters,
Ere our loved we meet;
But to give us courage,
Lest we be dismayed,
Christ, the Lord, will whisper,
“Do not be afraid!”
