I’ll not be afraid for the terror by night,
Nor the arrow that flieth by day;
For the Lord whom I serve is my shield and my light,
He will guide and protect all the way.
I’ll not be afraid, I’ll not be afraid,
Where He leadeth I safely can go;
I will trust Him alway, both by night and by day,
He’ll be with me forever, I know.
I’ll not be afraid, though the stormy winds blow,
And the billows sweep over my soul;
He who calmeth the sea will protect me, I know,
And will lead me to heaven’s bright goal.
I’ll not be afraid of the scorns of the world,
Nor to tell of God’s wonderful love;
When from Satan’s vile host fiery darts shall be hurled,
I’ll be strengthened with grace from above.
I’ll not be afraid when the grave I shall see-
Just beyond its dark shadow is rest;
And the welcome of angels is waiting for me,
When I enter those realms of the blest.
