Why, why art thou so fearful - Fear Not
(Charlotte Elliott/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Fear Not.

"Be not afraid! only believe."

1. Why, why art thou so fearful,
  O thou of little faith?
Why faint, desponding, tearful,
  forgetting One who saith –
"Let not your heart be troubled,
  nor let it be afraid;"
the charge repeated, doubled,
  enforces what he said. PDF - Midi

2. Each dark and threatening presage
  fulfils his sacred word;
each judgement bears his message,
  death pestilence, the sword:
He over all presideth,
  withdrawn in light serene;
each wheel minutely guideth
  of earth's immense machine.

3. And still, though skies are darkening,
  his children must not fear;
to those sweet accents hearkening,
  which whisper, "He draws near."
My soul, in him confiding,
  thy rock, thy hiding-place,
beneath his wings abiding,
  wait thou to see his face.

4. To herald his appearing,
  these awful signs are sent;
these storms the skies are clearing;
  soon will the veil be rent:
then, with his saints surrounding
  him thou hast long adored,
will thy sweet harp be sounding,
  "For ever with the Lord."
