Saturday Song: Be Not Afraid

On weekdays during the season of Lent, we post daily meditations on our website, and on Saturdays we include a piece of music, as well. These songs are submitted by parish family members and friends of Christ Church, and meant to uplift, comfort, and inspire.


We hope that you enjoy.


Be Not Afraid

You shall cross the barren desert

But you shall not die of thirst

You shall wander far in safety

Though you do not know the way

You shall speak your words to foreign men

And they will understand

You shall see the face of God and live


Be not afraid

I go before you always

Come, follow me and I will give you rest


If you pass through raging waters in the sea

You shall not drown

If you walk amid the burning flames

You shall not be harmed

If you stand before the power of hell

And death is at your side

Know that I am with you through it all


Be not afraid

I go before you always

Come, follow me and I will give you rest


And blessed are your poor

For the kingdom shall be theirs

Blest are you that weep and mourn

For one day you shall laugh

And if wicked men insult and hate you

All because of me

Blessed, blessed are you


Be not afraid

I go before you always

Come, follow me and I will give you rest.


songwriter: R.J. Dufford
