 Song 33

Fear Them Not!

Fear Them Not!

(Matthew 10:28)

1. Ever onward, O my people,

Let the Kingdom tidings go.

Tremble not before our foe.

Let all lovers of truth know

That my reigning Son, Christ Jesus,

To the earth has cast the foe,

Soon to bind the Devil, Satan,

Letting all his victims go.

(CHORUS)

Fear them not, O my beloved,

Though their boasting threats may fly.

I will keep my faithful servant

As the apple of my eye.

2. Even though your foes are many,

Though they threaten and revile,

Though they flatter and they smile,

To mislead and to beguile.

Fear them not, my faithful warriors,

Nor their persecution’s heat,

For I will preserve the faithful

Till the vict’ry is complete.

(CHORUS)

Fear them not, O my beloved,

Though their boasting threats may fly.

I will keep my faithful servant

As the apple of my eye.

 3. Never fear you are forgotten;

I am still your strength and shield.

Though you die upon the field,

Even death to me will yield.

Fear them not who kill the body

But cannot destroy the soul.

To the end may you be faithful;

I will bring you to your goal!

(CHORUS)

Fear them not, O my beloved,

Though their boasting threats may fly.

I will keep my faithful servant

As the apple of my eye.
