When the dark clouds gather round you
And your hopes begin to fade –
Can’t you hear a voice surround you?
“It is I, be not afraid.”
Did it seem no one could hear you
When you bowed your head and prayed?
Christ our Lord is always near you
He is there, be not afraid.
Is your journey long and dreamy?
Does it seem your feet have strayed?
He’ll be there to rest the weary –
Yes, He’s there, be not afraid.
Then when sickness, pain and sorrow
On your body has been laid,
Think of what will be tomorrow!
Christ is there, be not afraid.
