I will not be afraid

1
I will not be afraid;
I will not be afraid;
  I will look upward,
  And travel onward,
    And not be afraid.
2
He says He will be with me;
He says He will be with me;
  He goes before me,
  And is beside me,
    So I’m not afraid.
3
His arms are underneath me;
His arms are underneath me;
  His hand upholds me,
  His love enfolds me,
    So I’m not afraid.
4
His Word will stand for ever;
His Word will stand for ever;
  His truth it shall be
  My shield and buckler,
    So I’m not afraid.
5
He will give grace and glory;
He will give grace and glory;
  His cross before me,
  His banner o’er me,
    So I’m not afraid.
6
So we go singing onward;
So we go singing onward;
  We’re pressing forward,
  We’re marching upward,
    To Him unafraid.

Awesome to find this!! I'm also 69 and we sang this in Sunday School! Sometimes you just can't get those old songs (which is good!) out of your mind. PTL and God bless you!

I learned this song as a youth -- I'm now 69 and sang it whenever needed and was telling my VBS class and they loved it -- two girls were in a scarey situation the day after and shared how they sang the first verse. Our God is so good!
