Be Not Dismayed
By Christine Hare Tate
He takes hold of your right hand,
Do not fear, the Lord shall help you.
He makes rivers flow and springs
burst forth in valleys of desolation.
He makes the wasteland flourish,
creates pools of water in the desert.
He is our hope and salvation…
Come, behold the Holy One of Israel!
Be not dismayed, kings and nations
shall bow before His throne.
Rejoice, the Lord has chosen you!
He is the Alpha and the Omega,
the Beginning and the End…
Believe, and be not afraid!
