1 Now Christ again to me appears
Banishing all my doubts and fears
With his surprising grace;
He says fear not for you I died,
Remove thy doubts, look in my side,
Thy soul with joy at my right hand
At the last day I'll place.
2 Tho' sin within thee yet remains
Against thy will it's grace that reigns,
And shall the conqu'ror prove;
Sin, earth and hell in vain combine,
To pluck thee from those hands of mine
Thou art secured in the arms
Of everlasting love.
3 Fear not tho' all the earth engage
Against thy soul, with hellish rage;
I'm earths' foundation's prop:
The government is laid on me,
I have all power to succour thee;
Then lean on my eternal arm
I'll not deceive thy hope.
4 They sooner may the mountains move
Than thee destroy or change my love,
Or alter what I swore,
The Sun and Moon may cease to shine,
The Earth and all therein decline;
But my eternal love stands firm
And shall for evermore.
