Welcome to another #ThrowbackThursday, a day we have dedicated to the promotion of influential African gospel songs.

Each week`s featured selection comes after passing 7gospeltracks.com editor`s review; we consider any Christian song with a release date of three years old and above.

Also, it should reflect a scriptural theme or perspective (for example, love, faith, friendship, hope, prayer, holiness and others), have good radio airplay, be of quality production and reflects well-written lyrics.

After our assessment, we have picked "We Will Not Fear" by Rebekah Dawn (featuring Abel Chungu Musuka) as the #ThrowbackThursday song.

Written and produced by : Rebekah Dawn and featuring Abel Chungu Musuka

The Untold Story of We Will Not Fear by Rebekah Dawn

I wrote this song a few days after the westgate attack in Nairobi, Kenya.

My heart was so heavy for those who had lost loved ones, for those who had gone through the traum of the experience and for those whose job it was to witness the aftermath (soldiers, police, volunteers, etc).

But it is also written for any situation or season where understanding is hard to grasp, peace seems out of reach or pain seems to drown out truth. there is hope... there is love... there is an answer... His name is Jesus. this song is declaration to our nation, our people, our own souls... we will not fear).

I am honored to have my friend from zambia, Abel Chungu Musuka, sing with me...

We Will Not Fear Lyrics

There are times when the power of the darkness

Seems so strong And when waiting through the night

Can seem so long And we wonder if the sun will shine again There are time when the anger

And the pain seem like they'll never go away When the answers seem too far

And when we don't know what to say We don't know what to feel We don't know how to cry


But there is hope for the broken And there is peace for the grieving And there is strength for the hurting And though it's hard to understand..


There is a love that heals the wounded hearts There is a rest that soothes the worried souls There is a calm that stills the windy seas There is a friend we have in Jesus When shadows chase us in our troubled dreams When truth seems silent while pain still screams When there is doubt that tears will ever end What a friend we have in Jesus

There are times the fury of the storm is what carries eagles higher Sometimes the beauty of the gold is tested in the fire And even though it's hard,

We learn the most in our trials There are times the darkness of the night

Brings out the brilliance of the stars Sometimes the heart of a hero is truly seen in war And tho we go pain,

We can heal and rise again...




We will not fear For our God is our refuge and strength We will not fear Our God is our tower and shield We will not fear We will stand for our hope is in the Lord We will not fear Though the enemy will rise

(Repeat) We know our God is greater
