To give hope in these uncertain times, acclaimed Dove Award-winning band The Afters is offering listeners a free download of their current single “I Will Fear No More”.  Many people are struggling in the grip of unemployment, self-isolation, and COVID-19, and feel overwhelmed in a constant news-cycle where uncertainty and panic is a headline. “I Will Fear No More” is an invitation to declare victory against these feelings of fear, worry, and anxiety.
 
The “I Will Fear No More” download, along with videos and extra resources, can be found at freeccm.com/fearrnoore.  
 
Each member of The Afters has individually struggled with anxiety, and the song was initially written in response to this shared struggle. Now, the band prays that the message of “I Will Fear No More” will cover listeners with the promise of God’s peace that passes understanding, and can be sung as an anthem against anxiety.
 
Dan Ostebo, bassist for The Afters, shares, “One thing I know for certain is that God is on the throne, that God is in control, that He’s fought the battles of fear and anxiety that are crippling you at this very moment.”
 
Even before the single was released to radio, “I Will Fear No More” became an anthem for many struggling with anxiety. The song has been streamed over 8.5 million times, has over 8 million combined views of the two official music videos, and is rising on the Billboard Christian radio chart as people find comfort and strength in the message.
 
Many fans have already taken advantage of this free offering, as over 2,000 people have downloaded the track in the first days since it was posted.
 
Josh Havens, lead vocalist, explains, “We hope that when you listen to the lyrics, God’s peace that passes all understanding would just wash over you and remind you that He’s in control.”

Written by Joshua Havens, Jason Ingram, Jordan Mohilowski, Matt Fuqua, Dan Ostebo
 
Every anxious thought that steals my breath
It’s a heavy weight upon my chest
As I lie awake and wonder what the future will hold
Help me to remember that You’re in control
 
You’re my courage when I worry in the dead of night
You’re my strength ‘cause I’m not strong enough to win this fight
You are greater than the battle raging in my mind
I will trust you Lord
I will fear no more.
 
I will lift my eyes
I will lift my cares
Lay them in Your hands
I’ll leave them there
When the wind and waves are coming
You shelter me
Even though I’m in the storm, the storm is not in me
 
You’re my courage when I worry in the dead of night
You’re my strength ‘cause I’m not strong enough to win this fight
You are greater than the battle raging in my mind
I will trust you Lord
I will fear no more.

Managing Editor

I've been an enormous Christian music fan since a concert by The World Wide Message Tribe in 2001. I'm passionate about spending my life changing the Christian music stereotype/saving the lives of our youth with it. I love puns, sports, wrestling & logic puzzles. I also have an English accent...because I'm English. My favo(u)rite 10 bands are: TFK, KJ-52, Disciple, Stellar Kart, Manafest, Skillet, Kutless, Family Force 5, Seventh Day Slumber and Ashes Remain. Oh, and I couldn't speak until I was 7 and have verbal (and physical) dyspraxia - don't give up on your dreams! God will use your biggest weakness as your biggest strength.
