It is a beautiful song--growing up and singing it with my family with the church band--knowing it is one of my moms favorite songs. Now, half way around the world -- with computer music :-( --and my own children--it is a treasure--glad I found the words. Now looking for Psalm 49 (?) and few others. Crazy how you miss things more when you have your own kids.

I am a nurse and often sing this hymn to anxious patients. It always helps them to relax and rest. I have seen it be more effective than medication to help them breathe easier, to sleep, reduce pain and blood pressure, reassure dying patients and their families. I love this hymn and sharing it.

Thanks for the Be Not Afraid song, I was searching for that one too. I used to sing it in elementary school.

I've just Googled another song that I used to sing in elementary school, but can't find it. Does anyone know the following:


Bread is your body
Come to be the bread of life
Wine is your blood and we
Offer you a sacrifice
Blessed be God forever

I'd like the sheet music, but if I could just get the lyrics I would be a happy camper. Anyone?

I first heard the song when I was in High School. It is very consoling and a constant reminder that we are not alone.

In the seventh and eight grades from 1980 to '82 I played classical guitar in our church's youth mass. "Be Not Afraid," "Eagle's Wing," "Here I Am Lord," and "Though The Mountains May Fall were very common hymns that I had to play. I certainly have bittersweet memories of my early guitar playing "gigs" at mass. I was under a tremendous amount of stress whenever I had to play guitar at a school mass and the nuns were all there to "judge" my playing! If I fretted a note improperly, or didn't or did play with too much gusto, I'd be criticized big time by one of the eighth grade nuns who was the "music director." It was cool to be able to play guitar at church at the youth masses. The priests were younger and were encouraging of my musical ability and if I goofed no one seemed to notice. Oh, but those nuns.......

When I hear this song I envision Jesus saying these words to Paul after being blinded and waiting to have his site restored. Imagine those days of blindness and wondering what Jesus had in store for him. I think the words fit perfectly.

According to my research,
This song is titled "BE NOT AFRAID FOR IT IS I"
written by Jeff Steele and Ricky Atkinson
sung by The Whisnants

BE NOT AFRAID FOR IT IS I
by Jeff Steele / Ricky Atkinson


Rocked by waves and howling winds
And the storm that threatened them
The disciples sailed a boat on Galilee
They were tired and full of fright
They had fought the storm all night
Then the master came walking on the sea

CHORUS
Be not afraid for it is I, in the fourth watch of the night
You fought and prayed, but I am here and it's alright
The storm will rage, the winds will blow
But they are under My control
It won't be long 'til morning breaks
Be not afraid

Hope seems gone, the day is done
And the night is pressing on
The Doctor said that they've done all that they can do
Around the clock the family prays
But help's already on the way
Without a doubt, another doctor's in the room

CHORUS
Be not afraid for it is I, in the fourth watch of the night
You fought and prayed, but I am here and it's alright
The storm will rage, the winds will blow
But they are under my control
It won't be long 'til morning breaks
Be not afraid

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
The storm will rage, the winds will blow
But they are under my control
It won't be long 'til morning breaks
Be not afraid

TAG
The storm will rage, the winds will blow
But they are under my control
It won't be long 'til morning breaks
Be not afraid
Be not afraid
