Fear Not


"Fear not My child I'm with you..."

This tower of fear

Holds me captive,

This prison

All my own.


The tormentors

Come to mock me,

And say that

I’m all alone.


This stronghold

In my mind,

My heart it

Quakes with fear.


But then I

Cry to You, oh God,

Your Presence

Is brought near.


You say:


“Fear not My child

I’m with you.

Let your heart

Be not afraid.”


“For the battle

Is not yours,

But Mine

Watch My delivering ways.”


“Cast all your cares

Upon Me child.

Trust in

My Holy Word.”


“Deliverance by man

Is in vain,

But in Me

You can be sure.”


“Fear not My child

I’m with you.

Let your heart

Be not afraid.”


“Cast all your fears

Upon Me child,

And trust

My Holy ways.”


“For I shall

Not forsake you,

Or leave you

All alone.”


“The way is but

To trust in Me,

And the means

I’ll surely show.”


“Fear not My child

I’m with you.

Let your heart

Be not afraid.”


“For though the trials

Seem dark right now,

I shall surely

Make a way.”
