My fears adore Thee, 0 my God!
My heart is chilled with awe j Yet love from out that very chill
Fresh life and heat can draw.
Thou owest me no duties, Lord!
Thy Being hath no ties; The world lies open to Thy Will,
Its victim and its prize.
Father! Thy power is merciful
To us poor worms below, Not bound by justice, but because
Thyself hath willed it so.
The fallen creature hath no rights,
No voice in Thy decrees ; Yet while Thy glory owns no claims,
Thy love makes promises.
Thou may'st have willed that I should die In friendship, Lord! with Thee,
Or I may in the act of sin Touch on eternity.
What can I do but trust Thee, Lord!
For Thou art God alone ? My soul is safer in Thy hands,
Father! than in my own.
