Be not afraid.@Matthew 14:27

Abraham Metzler, in the Church and Sunday School Hymnal, edited by John D. Brunk (Scottdale, Pennsylvania: Mennonite Publishing House, 1902) (🔊 pdf nwc). From Temple Star.

When trials and temptations
Around thee darkly flow,
When storms and griefs assail thee
To bring thy courage low,
Be not discouraged, brother,
But firmly stand and wait;
The clouds again will vanish,
Oh, be thou not afraid!

Refrain

There is sweet rest in Heav’n,
There is sweet rest in Heav’n;
There is sweet rest,
There is sweet rest;
There is sweet rest in Heav’n.

When waters of affliction
May seem to overflow,
Or through some fiery trial
You may be called to go,
Keep up your faith and courage,
The Lord will dissipate
The waves that dash against thee;
Fear not, be not afraid.

Refrain

The soul that Jesus loveth
He’ll chasten and refine;
That like a golden luster
It may the brighter shine;
The dross alone will vanish,
The gold is brighter made;
Be not discouraged, brother,
Fear not, be not afraid!

Refrain
