Fear Naught

I felt no worth
Until I knew
You died for me

I felt unloved
Until I knew
Unfailing love

I feared for lack
Until I saw
You care for me

I felt alone
Until I knew
You bide in me

I felt deprived
Until I knew
I’m heir with you


I felt afraid
Until I learned
Your power in me

I dreaded death
Until I knew
You conquered it

I shall fear naught
Because I know
Almighty God

Luke 12:32 – Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Romans 8:15 – For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Psalm 118:6 – The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
