Scripture Verse

Fear not, for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art Mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God. Isaiah 43:1–3

Lyrics

Fear not, your Maker now pro­claims,
“I am the Lord, your God.
You’re mine; I’ve called you by your name.
I am the Lord, your God.
I’ll help you through the wa­ters;
They’re not too deep for God.
The ri­vers won’t sweep o’er you;
I am the Lord, your God.

“I’ll walk with you through fie­ry ways;
I am the Lord, your God.
You won’t be burned or set ablaze;
I am the Lord, your God.
I’ve ran­somed and re­deemed you;
I am the ho­ly God.
You’re pre­cious and I love you;
I am the Lord, your God.

Before Me no god e’er was formed;
I am the Lord, your God.
Nor af­ter Me will any come;
I am the Lord, your God.
For I alone can save you;
I am Je­ho­vah God.
This day you are my wit­ness;
I am the Lord, your God.
