Now Why This Fear?

As Christians meeting to worship, there are several things we do.  We are to pray, sing and fellowship together, encourage and admonish one another, and give thanks together to God.

As a way to encourage one another this Sunday, we’ll sing the question, “Now Why This Fear?”  We’ll also sing together the answer!

Now why this fear and unbelief?
Has not the Father put to grief
His spotless Son for us?
And will the righteous Judge of men
Condemn me for that debt of sin
Now canceled at the cross?

Jesus, all my trust is in Your blood
Jesus, You’ve rescued us
Through Your great love

Complete atonement You have made
And by Your death have fully paid
The debt Your people owed
No wrath remains for us to face
We’re sheltered by Your saving grace
And sprinkled with Your blood

How sweet the sound of saving grace
How sweet the sound of saving grace
Christ died for me

Be still my soul and know this peace
The merits of your great high priest
Have bought your liberty
Rely then on His precious blood
Don’t fear your banishment from God
Since Jesus sets you free

    Mark, I really like the intro to new hymns/songs that you prepare for Sunday Worship and your blog. Too many of us love the melody but are nearly oblivious to the lyrics.
