A soaring pop anthem set to tribal rhythms with an epic chorus, "Don't Be Afraid" helped lift the John Burroughs High School Powerhouse show choir to their first National Championship in 1997.

lyrics

"Don't Be Afraid"
Written by Matthew Eric Jensen & Todd Aaron Jensen

I believe that love is sometimes
What we think it seems
That faith begins with something
More than broken dreams
We always search for hope
But come up empty-handed
Our hearts caught in between
The soaring and the landing

Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid

I believe that time will always
Turn the pages we have read
That tenderness and memory
Will raise compassion from the dead
We always search for hope
But only find our sadness
Our hearts caught in between
The dreaming and the madness

Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid

Is it all in your heart
Is it all in your mind
I believe in the healing hands of time

Don’t be afraid
Love will catch you as you’re falling
Don’t be afraid
Love is the voice that you hear calling
Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
