71. The Fearlessness of Faith

1 Jehovah is my light,
And my salvation near;
Who shall my soul affright,
Or cause my heart to fear?
While God my strength, my life sustains,
Secure from fear my soul remains.

2 When evil-doers came
To make my life their prey,
They stumbled in their shame
And fell in sore dismay;
Thought hosts make war on every side,
Still fearless I in God confide.

3 My one request has been,
And still this prayer I raise,
That I may dwell within
God's house through all my days,
Jehovah's beauty to admire,
And in His temple to inquire.

4 When troubles round me swell,
When fears and dangers throng,
Securely I will dwell
In His pavilion strong;
within the covert of His tent
He hides me till the storm is spent.

5 Uplifted on a rock
Above my foes around,
Amid the battle shock
My song shall still resound;
Then joyful offerings I will bring,
Jehovah's praise my heart shall sing.
