Be Not Afraid



Be not afraid when in darkness,

For you shall see the light,

A light that is everlasting,

For it burns so very bright.


It burns when your heart is heavy,

It shines when you have lost all hope,

When your life has lost its sparkle,

At a time when you just can’t cope.


Be not afraid when in darkness,

For God will show you the way,

He will lift the gloom that surrounds you,

And keep all trouble at bay.


So next time you feel sad and lonely,

When you feel you have no way to turn,

Think of the glorious spirit that surrounds you,

Switch on the light let it burn.


Be not afraid when in darkness,

Let God be your partner and guide,

Accept the love he sends to protect you,

Hold his hand, as he walks by your side.


Let him fill your life with his spirit,

And strength to make a new start,

Then feel the power that is within you,

Now that you have let spirit into your heart.
