Fear Will Kill Faith

Fear is a lion

Slowly stealing faith and joy

It devours the soul and crushes hope

It is the opposite of the spiritual life


Fear stands as a conquering army

Posed to block the faith given by the Lamb

It lurks in the darkness

Looking to conquer blessings


It causes shame and hopelessness

It makes cowards of us all

It is a sly wolf waiting and watching

Looking for an enemy to slay


Come my Lord

My glorious host

My divine Spirit

Lift me about the chaos


Come my wonderful God

And lift me above my fears

Lift me as high as the heavens

Let me see your glorious face shine


Lift me and let me see the passionate cross

Let me understand the meaning of grace

  1. Romans 14:8: “If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.” To me, that’s grace.
