Based on Isaiah 43:2-3; Luke 6:20

                  I
                 A                                
You shall cross the barren desert,
                                               E
But you shall not die of thirst.
                  D
You shall wander far in safety,
                    Bm                      E
Though you do not know the way.
                    A                C#7     F#m    Bm
You shall speak your words to foreign men
         D          G          E
And they will understand.
A               F#m     B          B7          E
You shall see the face of God and live.

Chorus:
A                     E  Bm
Be not afraid.
   E       A                          D
I go before you always.
                      C#m
Come follow me
F#m Bm        E           A
And   I will give you rest.

                  II
           A               
If you pass through raging waters in the sea
                                   E
You shall not drown.
           D
If you walk amid the burning flames,
 Bm                       E
You shall not be harmed.
            A           C#7     F#m       Bm
If you stand before the pow'r of hell
 D      G          E
And death is at your side,
A             F#m     B             B7         E
Know that I am with you through it all.
