Fear not, I am with thee

1
“Fear not, I am with thee“;
Blessed golden ray,
Like a star of glory,
Lighting up my way!
Through the clouds of midnight,
This bright promise shone,
“I will never leave thee,
Never will leave thee alone.”
  No, never alone,
  No, never alone;
He promised never to leave me,
  Never to leave me alone;
No, never alone,
  No, never alone;
He promised never to leave me,
    Never to leave me alone.
2
Roses fade around me,
Lilies bloom and die,
Earthly sunbeams vanish—
Radiant still the sky!
Jesus, Henna-flower,*
Blooming for His own,
Jesus, heaven’s sunshine,
Never will leave me alone.
3
Steps unseen before me,
Hidden dangers near;
Nearer still my Savior,
Whispering, “Be of cheer“;
Joys, like birds of springtime,
To my heart have flown,
Singing all so sweetly,
“He will not leave me alone.”
An Old World plant, prized for its fragrant yellow and white flowers. (Song of Sol. 1:14, A.S.V.)

I love this beautiful song since I was a kid. We used to sing it in the Church. It lifted me and my spirit high whenever I sing and listen to it. It makes my tears flow. Its so touching and encouraging knowing that my God promises and always with me all the time.

These days whenever I am sitting with my keyboard I start singing this song. I love all the lines ..... especially the last stanza "Steps unseen before me, Hidden dangers near; Nearer still my Saviour, Whispering, "Be of cheer", Joy, like birds of springtime, To my heart have flown, Singing all so sweet, "He will not leave me alone".... 🎶🎵🎼🎻🎹🎷🎺

My mother used to sing this song often, some 40 years ago. I used to hum once in a while when I needed courage as I concentrate more on the verse.

This affirms the truths in John 14:18, and Hebrews 13:5-6 that in all our crisis of bereavement and loss the Lord promises to stand beside me and that I am never alone. What a comfort! He is 'Immanuel' and His Presence and love are all we need. He is and will be sufficient for us. Halleluia!

This song is such a sweet reminder that despite how sometimes we feel like God has deserted us, we can still hold on to the beautiful promise He made to us. He promises never to leave us alone. So, we should take courage and lift our faith because He is right there. When the fight gets too much for us, He will step in and take it over. He has, not stored in yet because despite our doubts, He knows we have the strength we need to overcome.
