Psalm 91 in Song
Thou Shalt Not Be Afraid 

Psalm 91 in song; a sequence of important Bible verses to store up in your heart, made easier when set to music.

This is a beautiful and comforting passage - Psalm 91:5-7 - that I and my daughters memorized when they were children at home.

Psalm 91 King James Version

Psalm 91 in simple English might be preferred by some, but for sheer beauty, nothing can outdo the words of Psalm 91 KJV (King James Version).  It is poetry, as well as being scripture.

Though my setting doesn't retain the "-eth" endings on verbs, and substitutes "near" for "nigh," in all other aspects it is almost identical to the original KJV.

With early guitar students, the chords in the key of D are easier, despite the tricky Bm chord.  However, using finger 4 is not much fun.  Many players will prefer to simply shift to second  position.

In the key of C, everything is truly easy except for the F chord, for beginners!

Thou Shalt Not Be Afraid
Psalm 91:5-7

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror of the night,

Nor for the arrow that flies by day.

Nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness,

Nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand,

But it shall not come near thee... but it shall not come near thee.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror of the night,

Nor for the arrow that flies by day.

Nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness,

Nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday.
