361. O Love that Casts Out Fear

1 O love that casts out fear,
O love that casts out sin,
Tarry no more without,
But come and dwell within.

2 True sunlight of the soul,
Surround me as I go;
So shall my way be safe,
Our feet no straying know.

3 Great love of God, come in,
Wellspring of heav'nly peace;
Thou living water, come,
Spring up, and never cease.

4 Love of the living God,
Of Father, and of Son,
Love of the Holy Ghost,
Fill Thou each needy one.
