Fear Not
Cosme Tura

Fear Not

When I beheld the darkness
and let fear surround me there,
I prayed, "Oh, Dear Heavenly Father,
these things I cannot bear."
He heard my cry and met me there
and said, "Fear is not of Me.
Put your trust in Me, dear child,
and the darkness has to flee."
So now when I get fearful,
I remember His sweet words.
I take them in unto myself
as the sweetest I've ever heard.
