604. O Love that Casts Out Fear

1 O love that casts out fear,
O love that casts out sin,
Oh, stay no more without
But come and dwell within.
True sunlight of the soul,
Surround us as we go;
So shall our way be safe,
Our feet no straying know.

2 Great love of God, come in!
O spring of lasting peace,
O living water, come,
Spring up and never cease.
Love of the living God,
Of Father and of Son,
Love of the Holy Ghost,
Make now our hearts as one.
