Don't be afraid — Andrew Brewis

Don’t be afraid, for I have redeemed you
I have called you by your name,
Don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid coz you are mine.

When you walk through the waters I’ll be with you
You will never sink beneath the waves

Don’t be afraid, for I have redeemed you
I have called you by your name,
Don’t be afraid don’t be afraid coz you are mine.

When the fire is burning all around you,
be still and you’ll never be touched by the flames

When trials try to hurt you I’ll be with you
Remember then I am right at your side
Remember you are precious in my eyes

Don’t be afraid, for I have redeemed you
I have called you by your name,
Don’t be afraid coz you are mine.

I am your Father, you are my child
Don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid, coz you are mine.
I am your Father, you are my child,
you are mine.

Listen to Andrew share the inspiration behind Don't be afraid.

Andrew hails from England and is a member of the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters. He has been a professional pianist, singer, songwriter, teacher and cabaret artist for 30 years. Andrew is equally at home entertaining in the intimate surroundings of a piano bar as he is performing on stage, radio and television.

Now a recognized master of his art, Andrew's performances and recordings are quintessentially English, but with an international slant and a truly international following - having performed in London, New York and Cape Town.

Becoming a writer and performer of hymns and inspirational music is something that really "found me," and it’s now part of who I am SO, writing, recording, performing and sharing this inspirational music is now something I wish to develop more

Andrew now spends a lot of professional time concentrating on writing inspirational/religious music and to this end has set up a website dedicated to inspirational music...ideas, thoughts and also information on concert tours and music workshops for all. www.andrewdbrewis.com. Andrew has 2 hymns in The Christian Science Hymnal Supplement...Satisfied and Come Gracious Spirit

A lifelong Christian Scientist, Andrew knows that all his inspiration comes directly from a higher source. “When I leave myself out of the composing process, the ideas, melodies and arrangements just flow seamlessly with no apparent human effort ….. it is such a joy.”

Music reaches beyond denominational borders; it is often able to lift, heal and connect with people of various beliefs or of no particular faith.

"I think that music is able to spiritually prod and poke us, stirring, awakening, and ultimately heal"
