Do Not Fear

Genre: Country

Lyrics

She was 83, lived alone
down in the Bayou in a rundown home.
Like a thief, Katrina came,
no mercy, didn’t ask her name.

She clambered up atop her bed,
stood waitin’, tryin’ to keep her head.
Waters rose just below her nose.
Death called and her spirit froze.

Then she saw against the wall
a framed verse high above it all.
Shakin’ there atop her bed,
she took to heart what the Good Book said:

CHORUS
Do not fear in the day of disaster.
Do not fear, put your confidence in Me.
Do not fear in the day of disaster.
Put your confidence…put your confidence…in Me.

“I can’t explain,” she later said.
“All my fear just up and fled.
“I felt a peace, my tremblin’ ceased.
Old death my soul released.”

Then all at once…a noise outside,
a soft tappin’ in the risin’ tide.
“How could it be, there’s only me?
“Who’d be knockin’ in this ragin’ sea?!”

She turned around and before her eyes,
a small boat with two neighbor guys.
They pulled her out, she gave a shout:
“Lord, Your Word’s stronger than my doubt!”

CHORUS
Do not fear in the day of disaster.
Do not fear, put your confidence in Me.
Do not fear in the day of disaster.
Put your confidence…put your confidence…in Me.

Now you might ask what does this tale
mean to those who didn’t face that gale?
Well, listen up and I’ll let you know
a simple truth so your faith can grow.

Comes a time in all our lives,
winds blow and the waters rise.
There’s no escape, it’s all our fate
hope fades, and it’s gettin’ late.

But if we choose to lift our eyes
to the Maker of the skies
He’ll give us peace, our souls release,
His Word an anchor ’til the harsh winds cease.

CHORUS
Do not fear in the day of disaster.
Do not fear, put your confidence in Me.
Do not fear in the day of disaster.
Put your confidence…put your confidence…in Me.
