Words (1931) by Percy Dearmer (1867-1936)

1.  When by fear my heart is daunted,

Thou dost hold me in Thy hand;

Prayerless, anxious, vainly haunted,

Thou dost make my courage stand:

Foolish worries, fretting troubles,

Melt away at Thy command.

2.  God, Thou art unfailing treasure,

Refuge Thou, and faithful Friend;

Thy resources none can measure,

Naught Thy steadfastness can bend.

Life and light and love immortal,

Firmly we on Thee depend.

3.  Held by love, to peace I win me,

Confident whate’er betide;

Safe in hope, Thy spirit in me,

With th’eternal power I hide;

Strength and health are mine, and valor–

Bravely over care I ride.
