https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/be-not-afraid-sheet-music/29772

SATB choir
Composed by Craig Courtney. Sacred. Octavo. Published by Beckenhorst Press (BP.1388).

Item Number: BP.1388

Commissioned by a church in Sioux City, Iowa, which was forced to relocate due to flooding, this lyrical anthem speaks of God's presence with us in times of hardship. A wonderful musical expression of comfort and courage for confirmation, child baptism or dedication, or any time you wish to convey the love of God through Isaiah's words of redemption.

    This powerful anthem is accessible to choirs of all levels. The comforting words from Isaiah are set to a gorgeous melody, beautifully arranged. I have also performed this anthem as a solo -- also very effective. Could be sung UNISON for smaller choirs.

    The men's group in my church really loved the song. I only used the soprano and base. This song meant a lot to us as many of us were facing difficult times.

    We have had the privilege of singing this several times in our choir over the years. The words have stamped their meaning on my heart.They have sent encouragement to my soul many times during difficult periods in our lives. What a blessing!

    We have used it for Graduation, and for our pastor's installation. It's easy and fun to sing, and the message is clearly stated without being dull. Thank you, Craig Courtney.

  • 2007-09-25 00:00:00.0 A Wonderful, Comforting Song

    I have been singing this arrangement of this song for over 15 years (and our little country choir sounds nothing like the sound clip!). This is the perfect anthem to sing when the scripture/sermon topic is about fear (the devil's best tool!).
