In Christ There Is No Fear

Representative Text

1 The daylight fades,
The evening shades
Are gathering round my head;
Father above,
I praise that love
Which nightly guards my bed.

2 While Thou art near,

The gloom of midnight hour;
Blest Jesus, still
From every ill
Defend me with Thy power!

3 Pardon my sin,
And enter in
To sanctify my heart;
Spirit Divine,
O make me Thine,
And ne'er from me depart!

Amen.
