"Fear Not This Night" is a song that can be heard at certain points of the Guild Wars 2 Story, including the end credits that appear at the end of the last instance of Victory or Death. An anthem of the sylvari, it is a song of hope sung by the Pale Tree and is symbolic of the hero's journey to defend Tyria from the threat of the Elder Dragons.[1]

Like all other songs composed before release, "Fear Not This Night" was composed and produced by Jeremy Soule. The lyrics were written by Jeremy Soule and Ree Soesbee, and the vocals were performed by Asja Kadrić.

Lyrics[edit]

Fear not this night
You will not go astray
Though shadows fall
Still the stars find their way
Awaken from a quiet sleep
Hear the whispering of the wind
Awaken as the silence grows
In the solitude of the night
Darkness spreads through all the land
And your weary eyes open silently
Sunsets have forsaken all
The most far off horizons
Nightmares come when shadows grow
Eyes close and heartbeats slow
Fear not this night
You will not go astray
Though shadows fall
Still the stars find their way
And you can always be strong
Lift your voice with the first light of dawn
Dawn's just a heartbeat away
Hope's just a sunrise away
Distant sounds of melodies
Calling through the night to your heart
Auroras, mists, and echoes dance
In the solitude of our life
Pleading, sighing arias
Gently grieving in captive misery
Darkness sings a forlorn song
Yet our hope can still rise up
Nightmares come when shadows roam
Lift your voice, lift your hope
Fear not this night
You will not go astray
Though shadows fall
Still the stars find their way
And though the night sky's filled with blackness
Fear not, rise up, call out and take my hand
Fear not this night
You will not go astray
Though shadows fall (Still the stars find their way)
Fear not this night
You will not go astray
Though shadows fall (Still the stars find their way)
And you can always be strong
Lift your voice with the first light of dawn
Dawn's just a heartbeat away
Hope's just a sunrise away

"Joko" version lyrics[edit]

Fear not this night.
You will not go astray.
Though shadows fall,
Still the stars find their way.
Awakened from a quiet sleep
Hear the whispering of the wind.
Awakened as the silence grows
In the solitude of the night.
Darkness spreads throughout the land
And your weary eyes open silently.
Sunsets have forsaken all
The most far off horizons.
Nightmares come when shadows grow.
Eyes close and heartbeats slow.
Fear not this night.
You will not go astray.
Though shadows fall,
Still the stars find their way.
Fear not this night.
You will not go astray.
Though shadows fall,
Still the stars find their way. (Find their way)
Who needs the light?
Fear not this night.
