Songs on Saturday: Don’t You Fear

Scripture tells us that, under the control of the Holy Spirit, we should be “speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:19). May you be encouraged by the spiritual truth in this song!

Don’t You Fear

words by Ben Everson

You can search all of this life 
And never understand 
Why the storms and all the strife
Seem unguarded by God’s Hand. 
Raise your weary head, 
And lift your tired eyes. 
Christ has conquered death!
And He listens when you cry. 

Chorus: 
There’s no valley, there’s no place 
There’s no danger you must face 
Alone, 
For He walks with you, 
And cries your tears before you do. 
He is there, He is here, 
Don’t you fear. 

His Word will be your light. 
His voice will be your guide. 
His hands will give you strength 
With His Spirit by your side. 
Raise your weary head, 
And lift your tired eyes. 
Christ has conquered death! 
He will raise you to the sky! 

There’s no valley, there’s no place
There’s no danger you must face
Alone,
For He walks with you,
And cries your tears before you do.
He is there, He is here,
Don’t you fear. 

Why are you cast down, my soul? 
And why have you no song? 
Hope thou in God! 
He is your tower strong! 
God is my salvation, strength, 
And He is now my song. 
Hope thou in God! 
He is your tower strong! 

There’s no valley, there’s no place
There’s no danger you must face
Alone,
For He walks with you,
And cries your tears before you do.
There’s no valley, there’s no place,
Nowhere that’s beyond His grace!
Be strong! For He walks with you.
And knows your steps before you do.
He is there, He is here, don’t you fear.
He is there, He is here, don’t you fear!
