Be Not Afraid

Irish Song Lyrics - Be Not AfraidAuthor: Robert Dufford
Copyright: SJ and New Dawn Music,5536 NE Hassalo, Partland,Or 97213

You shall cross the barren desert
but you shall not die of thirst
you shall wander far in safety
though you do not know the way
You shall speak your words in foreign lands
and all will understand
You shall see the face of God and live

Antiphon:
Be not afraid
I go before you always
Come follow me
And I will give you rest

If you pass through raging waters
in he sea you shall not drown
If you walk amid the buring flames
you shall not be harmed
If you stand before the power of hell
and death is at your side
know that I am with you throught it all

Blessed are your poor
for the kingdom shall be theirs
Blest are you that weep and mourn
for one day you shall laugh
And if wicked men insult and hate you
all because of me
blessed, blessed are you!
