Prayer Song: “Don’t Be Afraid”

This gentle piece by John Bell of the Iona community in Scotland is a new addition to our prayer song collection. It could also be used as a candle-lighting song (processional).

Feel the pulse of the song, and then notice how the first note of the melody starts just after the first beat – in between pulses – softening the beginning and giving an inviting quality to the start of the song.

Don’t be afraid
My love is stronger
My love is stronger than your fear

Don’t be afriad
My love is stronger
And I have promised, promised to be always near
