905Be not afraidSamuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-1876)7.7.7.7.

1When the dark waves round us roll,
And we look in vain for aid,
Speak, Lord, to the trembling soul,–
“It is I; be not afraid.”
2When we dimly trace Thy form
In mysterious clouds arrayed,
Be the echo of the storm,–
“It is I; be not afraid.”
3When our brightest hopes depart,
When our fairest visions fade,
Whisper to the fainting heart,
“It is I; be not afraid.”
4When we weep beside the bier
Where some well-loved form is laid,
Oh! May then the mourner hear,–
“It is I; be not afraid.”
5When with wearing hopeless pain
Sinks the spirit sore dismayed,
Breathe Thou then the comfort-strain–
“It is I; be not afraid.”
6When we feel the end is near,
Passing into death’s dark shade,
May the voice be strong and clear,–
“It is I; be not afraid.” Amen.
