[b]My God, How Many Are My Fears![/b]
My God how ma-ny are my fears!
How fast my foes in-crease!
Con-spi-ring my e-ter-nal death,
They break my pre-sent peace.
The ly-ing temp-ter would per-suade
There's no re-lief in heaven;
And all my swell-ing sins ap-pear
Too big to be for-given.
But Thou, my glo-ry and my strength,
Shalt on the temp-ter tread,
Shalt si-lence all my threat-ening guilt,
And raise my droop-ing head.
I cried, and from His ho-ly hill
He bowed a listen-ing ear,
I called my Fa-ther, and my God,
And He sub-dued my fear.
He shed soft slum-bers on mine eyes,
In spite of all my foes;
I woke, and won-dered at the grace
That guard-ed my re-pose.
What though the hosts of death and hell
All armed a-gainst me stood,
Ter-rors no more shall shake my soul,
My ref-uge is my God.
A-rise, O Lord, ful-fill Thy grace,
While I Thy glo-ry sing:
My God hath broke the ser-pent's teeth,
And death hath lost its sting.
Sal-va-tion to the Lord be-longs,
His arm a-lone can save:
Bles-sings at-tend Thy peo-ple here,
And reach be-yond the grave.
