George C. Stebbins


Fear not! God is thy shield,
And He thy great reward;
His might has won the field—
Thy strength is in the Lord.


Fear not! ’tis God’s own voice
That speaks to thee this word;
Lift up thy head, rejoice
In Jesus Christ thy Lord.

Fear not! for God has heard
The cry of thy distress;
The water of His Word
Thy fainting soul shall bless.


Fear not! be not dismayed,
He, evermore, will be
With thee, to give His aid,
And He will strengthen thee.


Fear not! ye little flock,
Your Savior soon will come,
The Glory to unlock,
And bring you to His home.
