O Fear Not The Future


O, fear not the future! ‘Tis hidden in love,
But known to Thy Savior who reigneth above;
The path for thy steps He Himself doth prepare,
And the light of His presence shall go with thee there.

Refrain:
O, fear not the future! Thy crown waiteth there!
The glories before thee no tongue can declare;
Go forward with Jesus; He knoweth the way
To mansions prepared for the children of day.

O, fear not the future! Thou art not alone;
He who died for His sheep ne’er forsaketh His own;
E’en thro’ the dark valley no ill can betide,
For Jehovah will be thy companion and guide. [Refrain]

O, fear not the future! What hast thou to fear?
Thy foes are all vanquished, thy captain is near;
His grace is sufficient; His promises sure;
And the arms underneath thee for aye shall endure. [Refrain]

O, fear not the future! The trials that come
Are sent to prepare thee for service and home;
Rich gains are thy losses, swift wings are thy sighs,
And thy tears shall bring visions of joy to thine eyes. [Refrain]
