BE NOT AFRAID
 
I.
You shall cross the barren dessert
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
 
Antiphon
Be not afraid, I go before you always
Come follow me, and I will give you rest
 
II.
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 pow’r of hell
And death is at your side
Know that I am with you through it all
(Antiphon)
 
III.
Blessed are your poor,
For the kingdom shall be theirs
Blessed are you that weep and mourn
For someday you shall laugh
And if wicked men insult and hate you
All because of Me
Blessed, blessed are you!
(Antiphon)
