Let not the fear of men hold back your tongue
When telling of your Savior, Christ the King.
The world’s not like your church where hymns are sung;
Its look is harsh, its words like bees will sting.
Be not afraid, but speak both bold and true;
With Jesus by your side He’ll see you through,
And even if they hold a knife to you,
With your last breath forgive them what they do.
Within a crowd there will be one to save,
But if you don’t speak up they may not hear.
The world may put your body in the grave;
The gospel, though, will never disappear.
Though Satan’s at your door and you feel weak,
The Savior’s here with you – stand up and speak!
Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision,
Be not afraid, but speak,
and hold not thy peace
Acts 18:9 KJV
