O Christian trav’ler, fear no more
The storms which round thee spread;
Nor yet the noontide’s sultry beams
On thy defenseless head.


Fear thou not, for I am with thee:
Be not dismayed, for I am thy God;
Fear thou not, for I am with thee:
Be not dismayed, for I am thy God.

Thy Savior, who upon the cross
Thy full redemption paid,
Will not from thee, His ransomed one,
Withhold His promised aid.


A safe retreat and hiding place
Thy Savior will provide;
And sorrow cannot fill thy heart,
While sheltered at His side.


No, in thy darkest days on earth,
When every joy seems flown,
Believer, thou shalt never tread
The toilsome way alone.
