Do not go fearful into that dark night;

Faith reaches out to grasp the Saviour’s hand,

Praise, praise to see the coming of his light.

While worldly wise men think it can be right

To terminate their life, we go on, and

Do not go fearful into that dark night;

Good people, by God’s grace are made aright,

By Jesus’ death for us, no sin can stand,

Praise, praise to see the coming of his light.

Young people, on the threshold of life’s flight

Can see in Jesus one who understands:

Do not go fearful into that dark night;

Sad people, nearing death, do not take fright,

Hold on to faith where nothing else will stand,

Praise, praise to see the coming of his light.

For me at three score years and ten, alright,

No curses, only God’s sure blessings grand;

Do not go fearful into that dark night;

Praise, praise to see the coming of his light.

Peter Campion, April 2016, with deepest respect to Dylan Thomas.
