Cast Out Fear, Live In Love

During a dark, downcast, hour,
Light evaporates in diffusion,
Even so faith burns on like candle power,
Dissolving anxiety, confusion.

One resigns oneself to God’s perfect love.
We anticipate Christ’s second advent.
In awe of shimmery angels from above,
Our brothers, sisters, heaven-scent!

Light of Jesus shines in each lass or lad,
Precious ones resurrected someday,
Thankful for salvation, sincerely glad,
In the arms of Jesus if we go away.

Bonded by grace, no longer astray,
Praises to Our Savior we ever raise,
Let us for lost, outcaste, souls pray.
Sun shining through the foggy haze.

A candle gleams lightening the load.
Faith guides one in pilgrim ways.
Around each distant rural road,
We vow to follow Jesus all our days.

No matter how evil one’s delusion,
One learns to forsake seclusion!
