“Fear Not, Thou Didst Them Unto Me”

In 2017, BYU students began tracing the origins of James Montgomery, author of “A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief.”
The story of this beloved hymn challenged students to live a life in service of others.
Below, you’ll see a  collection of videos documenting 7 of these stories around the world.
Join us on this journey as we live the words of this hymn over the next year and we’re so glad you’ve chosen to be a part of this.
