Never be afraid to speak for Jesus,
Think how much a word can do;
Never be afraid to own your Savior,
He who loves and cares for you.


Never be afraid, never be afraid,
Never, never, never;
Jesus is your loving Savior,
Therefore never be afraid.

Never be afraid to work for Jesus
In His vineyard day by day;
Labor with a kind and willing spirit,
He will all your toil repay.


Never be afraid to bear for Jesus
Keen reproaches when they fall
Patiently endure your every trial,
Jesus meekly bore them all.


Never be afraid to die for Jesus,
He the Life, the Truth, the Way,
Gently in His arms of love will bear you
To the realms of endless day.
