"Be of good faith it is I be not afraid"
- Matt. 14:27

1.  TOSS'D with rough winds and faint 

     with fear. 

     Above the tempest soft and clear

     What still small accents greet mine eat

     'Tis I be not afraid.

2.  'Tis I, who wash‘d thy spirit white

     ‘Tis I, who gave thy blind eyes sight 

     'Tis l, thy Lord, thy life, thy light 

     ‘Tis I, be not afraid.

3.  These raging winds, this surging sea 

     Have spent their deadly force on me 

     They bear no breath of Wrath to thee 

     'Tis I be not afraid.

4.  This bitter cup, I drank it first

     To thee it is no draught accost

     The hand that gives it thee is pierced 

     ‘Tis I be not afraid.

5.  Mine eyes are watching by thy bed 

     Mine arms are underneath thy head 

     Mine blessing is around thee shed 

     'Tis I, be not afraid.

6.  When on the other side thy feet
     Shall rest midst thousand welcomes sweet 

     One well-known voice the heart shall greet 

     Tis I, be not afraid.  Amen
